Well I've had a lump in my throat for about the last 45 minutes, how bout you?

I watched Obama get sworn in, stumbling over the precious words that were the Presidential Oath. Michelle Obama proudly (as always) beaming at her husband with admiration. The entire crowed silent, standing in the 30 degree temperatures of DC with wide smiles on their faces.

As much as I'd like to insert crude humor here, I'm totally glowing right now. Obama's speech was amazing. And even from the freezing cold, crowded streets of Times Square the emotions were unanimous with awe. I've never heard Time Square so quiet.

People stopped in the middle of the sidewalk to gaze up at one
of the many big screens that hang above Time Square.
