    Wolf says the President has to find a way to work withRepublicans, which I have heard too many times from the media. Why can’t it be said that Republicans must find a way to work with the President?

      Grrrr. I know what you mean. Piers said something about whether or not PBO would get something done in the second term, implying he didn’t in the first. You hold ‘em and I’ll hit ‘em, eh?

      Jackie that is all I have heard all day. I want Wolf and all the B.S. people who have been saying that all day to please tell me how do you work with someone who don’t want to work with you? How about the Republicans need to get off their racists high horse and work with this President. I have got to send Wolf a email now.

    I was talking to my big sis on cell cause she lives in L.A. In the middle of one of my sentences, she tells me gotta go cuz there’s a PBO happening. She just hung up. And to think I was talking to her while I was scheduled to watch PBO, FLOTUS, VPJoe and Dr. Jill at the inaugural reception. Big sisters can be such a pain :)

    I agree that President Obama seems so relaxed, calm, in such good spirits. Love seeing him like this! His re-election seems to have given him an extra je ne sais quois.

    Okay TOD I just sent Chips a recap of the TOD Meetup today with some pics. In addition to everything else today my husband had a birthday so my wonderful sons and DIL put a dinner together for him so I’m a little late getting this to Chips.

    You’ll just have to guess who is who when you see the pics cuz what’s said and done in DC stays in DC! ;)

    Needless to say I had a great time meeting my fellow bloggers. I was blessed with 6 tickets to the Inauguration and they were raffled off at the event.

    These FOUR love and respect each other. Their families get along too. That is so great to see.

    I wish most of the Ball Activities were easily available to access.

    C-SPAN has 3 stations and what is so darn hard to just Wall to Wall these activities?

    Sheesh.

    When VP Biden introduce FLOTUS and POTUS and they didn’t come out, I was wondering what the heck is going on? Did they hear him? Then hey walk out there and FLOTUS explain the problem. They were talking to Stevie Wonder. The ladies look lovely tonight.
