Schumer’s words were so strong. Here is Mrs Evers.
Sasha and Malia, then and now. Wow!!
Check this out: Sasha and Malia Obama in 2009 and 2013. Look how much they've changed! @JummyTV http://t.co/6F7962PL— Justin Karp (@jskarp) January 21, 2013
They are such striking young ladies.
“America. We are here … “
Roberts looking around.
He can’t believe the HUGE crowd….it’s all surreal to him.
And now we have Lamar Alexander quoting Alex Haley…
I love her voice!
“We celebrate the spirit of our ancestors … to today’s expression of a more perfect union.”
“That their living was not in vain … for every mountain you gave us the strength to climb … “
Does not PBO remain #44, even though this is the 57th Inauguration ceremony?
Yes, he’s the 44th President.
I know, I believe he does remain 44, but perhaps I am mistaken.
He’s the 44th president who was re-elected for a second term
Yes 2 consecutive terms. Grover Cleveland was only president re-elected unconsecutively.
Thank you all.
Yes, slight blooper there. It’s okay.
What a beautiful invocation. Powerful.
Love the closed eyes and absolute silence.
She is such a beautiful strong woman. Thank you for your words!
Can you just imagine what President Obama is thinking?
Scalia’s mouth is wide open like he’s about to catch a fly.
Pouring the Love all around him.
She is amazing.
The slaves who built THOSE steps…their living was not in vain!
A most beautiful invocation. Wow.
“We invoke the prayers of our grandmothers … ”
“There’s something within me … “
OMG!!!!!!!! What a powerful prayer. I must have a copy of that.
Amen, Mrs. Evers-Williams
That was wonderful! Thank you Mrs. Evers!
Awesome, awesome. what an arising this is . . . . ohmygod.
AJ reporters to stfu. Noobies.
Brooklyn representin’ !!
That was amazing.
What a beautiful prayer!
“Something within” What an elegant and eloquent woman! Such a good choice to deliver the invocation.
That’s it…. The choir, I’m falling apart here!
Chills and tears….Glory, Glory….
That prayer was fabulous.
How powerful Ms. Evers-Wms gives Invocation when 50yrs ago her husband Medger Evers was MURDERED fighting 4 this Amazing day. #Inauguration— Charlie Peach (@bretech2) January 21, 2013
When I hear this song I really think of Lincoln. What a song and what a day.
Battle Hymn of President Obama’s Republic, turns out.
The whole choir ensemble is off the chain!
Okay I’m in tears again. Glory Glory Hallelujah

Woot! I’m getting whiplash trying to keep up!
O Happy Day. Mrs. Myrlie Evers-Williams is just beautiful.
Look at those smiles!
Beautiful choir, both voices and physically attractive! Very moving!
Oh what a voice.
Gave me chills!! Beautiful, just beautiful :-)
By the way, Mrs. Evers Williams turns 80 in March. Not bad for a old chick, eh? Go Girl!!!
[Gosh she looks good. I know 40 yr olds that look way older than her.]
NO WAY!! She looks FAB! Puts a lot of young uns to shame.
Awesome shot of Michelle just now, loving the choir also.
Sounds like HOPE and CHANGE to me.
OMG, this whole event is an incredible TRIUMPH!!!!
Even the old songs sound different, don’t they? And now Lamar Alexander is quoting Roots. Amazing.
The best evah!!!
I didn’t think they could top 4 years ago but this is fabulous!!
that was fabulous
oh please someone put out the youtube video of the choir, so we can post it.
Oh My GOODNESSS!!!!
OMG what power.

CUTEST photo EVAH!! Love everything I see here. Wowie.
Oh yeah, she rocks in that outfit. What a beautiful form-fitting coat – she’s just a gorgeous woman. And those purple coats the girls have on are stunning. I absolutely love the colors. Makes me glad I live in a cold climate because I can look for one. ;-)
So is Lamar Alexander not a nutter?
Yup. He is.
I’ve never liked that song. Reminds me of war by religion. And since so many wars are fought in the name of religion….
But in the spirit of the day, I can say they did a very nice job. :mrgreen:
I’m baking cinnamon rolls and making doughnuts in honor of the Inauguation today! What a wonderful day – thanks Chips for the great coverage and thanks to all TODers for their faith, love and hard work in making this day happen. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to wake up each day and know PBO is our President.
That young soloist was beautiful as was her voice!
Lamar Alexander: "There is no mob, no coup, no insurrection". Hear that, RWNJs?— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) January 21, 2013
Why Alexander. Why any Repub. He lies as he talks because he will do all he can to sabatoge this President. How can he be so 2 faced.
“No mob, no coup…..”
———— okay. :roll:
Trust me, friends. I jotted some notes. I will be calling his office tomorrow and ask why he and rest of the Repubs don’t live by example those words.
I was like WTF? Where did he think he was – Guinea?
I know right?! Liar!!!
Loving the c-span coverage—-beautiful close-ups of our president and first lady.
Loved when Shumer said “Our Chosen Leader”….. Now this man saying Our elected Leader, and respecting that vote…. I hope the GOP is really listening!
Peaceful transfer of power. Follow what you preach, lamar.
I even love Lamar Alexander today.
How can he lie about respecting the results.
Big cheer at the introduction of Sonia Sotomayor.
SONIA FOR CHIEF JUSTICE!!
Sonia Sotomayor for Chief Justice!!!!— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) January 21, 2013
VPOTUS being sworn in
GM folks. I have been away for a few days and am just checking in. Anything special happening today?
Joe B. looks so handsome today too. Another one who is good to the bone.
She has such a strong beautiful voice. So does Joe. Our Joe.
We love you, too, Mr. Vice President. Thank you for serving our country so well.
wry smile from uncle joe, at the end.
OK, totally crying right now.
Sweet Baby James!
The Mall is now full and closed. Visitors are being directed to overflow area. wapo.st/Xt2ti1 #inaug2013— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) January 21, 2013
Enthusiasm gap must be in mid-Atlantic Ocean!
Hon. Sonja & VP Joey!
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!
Beau and Hunter almost look identical.
So help him, God.
Justice Sotomayer has such a velvety voice. When she gave VP the oath she told the press she was nervous. She did a better job than “MR. PERFECT MEMORY” Chief Justice Roberts. Hope he doesn’t “F” it up today.
aww sweet baby james doing my fave america song
Jesus, Tweetdeck moves way too fast
Iit is interesting to see how relaxed the Bidens and the Obamas are this time. They are truly enjoying this.
James Taylor!!! The Original JT!!!!!

Her daughter Malia is also wearing a J.Crew ensemble. Sasha Obama is wearing a Kate Spade coat and dress
