    Even though i posted earlier that I was glad the Bushes wouldn’t be there, as I sit and watch the former Presidents arriving, it seems to me that W. not showing up is a clear sign of partisanship and everyone should be talking about the republicans are signaling that they don’t want to cooperate with our President, not the other way around!

    Today I cry with joy for the re-inauguration of President Barack Obama and the resurrection of a dream and hope that has been lost since ’68. That I lived long enough to see this day!!!!

    Hey Guys!

    I’m so excited! I’ll be able to see the swearing in, then I’m off to our MLK event here. I’ve got everything TiVo’ed, but I’ll be back here later for the blow by blow from my TOD family!

    My Goodness! Is the FLOTUS beyond gorgeous or what! The Obama Family, the Biden Family…all of them just stunning!
