I have absolutely nothing to add to the abundant commentary that has been made so far about Barack Obama’s inauguration. All that can be said has been. It was a hugely historic moment that I feel privileged to have seen. But it’s not the end of our problems, economic, racial or otherwise. And so on.
However, though I did let the day pass without a blog post (I was very busy watching abundant television coverage and updating my Twitter feed — inaugural tweets currently start back here), I couldn’t just let the moment go by entirely without any sort of acknowledgment. Even a late one.
We have a new president. He’s one who I have more faith in, limited and cautious though it may be, than I’ve ever had in a president in my lifetime.
And right now, for this moment. That’s enough.
