Bush is no more! Dubya is gone! We survived.... What a relief!
This inauguration feels different to anything in recent memory. It seems from this side of Atlantic that the inaugurations of my adult-hood have been 'President *blah* was inaugurated in Washington today....' - but this one, it's been getting trailers all week. There is something in the air, an anticipation.
Whilst this is refreshing, it's also potentially problematic. Can Obama realistically meet expectations?
Well, whatever happens now, it's nice to have someone in the White House who is proud to use his gray matter.
