Official Inauguration Day Thread
I don't want this to turn into a political, left vs. right thread, but instead a celebration of a special day in our history. Any time a new President is inaugurated it's a big deal, but undoubtedly this is one of the biggest.

Maybe it will start to pick up now with the actual changing of the guard right around the corner.

But yeah, I'm a bit surprised as well. I guess political threads move slow when there's no arguing.

Obama sure is stepping into a huge pile of shit, hopefully he can help to get things turned around.

Honeymoon is over for Obama now, he's got a job to do and he better do it better than everyone's already immensely lofty expectations of him.

DC is a ****ing mess.

I had to take my aunt out at 5am this morning and let me tell you, if you were taking the Metro, "screwed" doesn't begin to explain how bad it was. I live between 2 Metro stations (Greenbelt and Fort Totten, if you're from the area) and got curious and decided to see how bad it was at 5:30am. Greenbelt station was backed up. There was 20-30 minute wait just to get into the PARKING LOT. Police had blocked off the parking lot to PG Mall and to the new Metro Shops garage. I figured if people were smart, they'd just drive about 4-5 blocks away and park in the Home Depot parking lot and just walk and pray they don't get ticketed or towed. Fort Totten Station was way better. No red tape, less police presence, but then again it is Fort Totten. :)

But yeah this morning and right now (people are leaving), I feel terrible for those people on the mall, just purely because of the transportation issues. Though I wish I could've been there.

Read, but did not see, Obama's speech. Lots of good stuff in it. Huge expectations for him. If he can bridge the gap between right and left, yay for him. Each side has valid points and each side has its uncompromising elements. True bi partisanism will be a difficult thing to achieve given the polarization of the past 16 years. I think the country is ripe for it, but it will take some effort (on both sides of the aisle) to look at their differences as philosophical rather than judgmental.
