in 2008 election, Barack Obama, Democrats, politics

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 feedinaugural 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.

If I may I would like to point out that Amnesty International has issued a challenge for Barack in his first 100 days. It includes demanding that he take steps to counter terror with justice. They have also created a petition for people to sign.

That is a great picture. OUt of curiousity, is it customary for the spouse to hold what the president is swore in on?

Also, in response to Renee’s comment he has already ordered a 120 day hold on prosecutions from guantanmo so the cases can be reviewed.
