What Was Your Favorite Part of President Obama's Inauguration?

What Was Your Favorite Part of Pres. Obama's Inauguration?

It feels like it's been a long time since November's election, but after today's inauguration we officially have Barack Obama as our president. It was a historic day for countless reasons, and there are many aspects of the ceremony that will linger in our minds. From his speech to his taking the oath and his family's fashion — Michelle in Isabel Toledo and the girls in J. Crew — as well as the performances and the general scene, it was an amazing way to welcome President Obama. Tell us — what was your favorite part of today's inauguration?

ITA with BethM. The inauguration itself was pretty amazing, and I loved seeing the huge crowds who got to witness this historic moment.

I just loved that his eldest daughter was videoing his speech on her little camera! With every tv channel in the world watching the new president, she was videoing her dad on her camera. It was so cute!

I liked all of it EXCEPT for that darn poet. That whole thing was terribly written and booooring.

well i guess he was standing. I guess the group of people to the side of him with all their hats on never had a lesson in etiquette.

The worst part was Reverend Joseph Lowery " We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to give back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right."

I've noticed Hainan that the hand over heart has apparently become optional, at most of the sporting events I go to I am one of the few who still does this.

the speech??? snooze.... swearing in was the only good part. After that I was done. I stuck through it horrible poet, no hand over the heart during the national anthem, all the sacrilege

You're right amloveaffair, I should have said arranged. Aretha really didn't wow me. Although her hat was interesting. :) I loved the girls outfits. They looked great. Sasha just looks like a little doll.

The crowd is unbelievable! It looks freezing, so I can't imagine how many people would be out there if it was warmer. The family looks great.

He gave a great speech. That was the best part. The worst part was the complete lack of class by everyone in attendance who booed Bush. It doesn't matter what you think of the man or of what he has done he is/was the president of our country and deserves more respect than that.

His speech was amazing and it's amazing to see how far we've come as a nation.
