Today is my very, very favorite Ted’s birthday. And as he said, for his birthday he gets a new President, one he voted for, and you can’t get much better than that.

I can’t remember ever watching an inauguration before. We’re watching this one. And then we’re having red beans and rice for dinner, and german chocolate cake for dessert. Happy Birthday. :)

Happy Ted day! And thank you again for truffles!

I was looking through old footage and commentary this morning, and see that this is the most fuss made about an inaugaration in decades. Nobody seemed to care about W (mostly because his inaugaration was underplayed because of the whole Florida voting thing), and the normal 'Our party won!' stuff pervaded the election of Clinton and Bush Sr. And that's as far back as I could remember, so that's as far back as I looked.

I fear that the pundits and general knuckleheads are going to be jumping down Obama's throat in a week or two demanding change. The American public isn't too patient, and (though practically every statement has included the phrase 'It's going to get worse before it gets better) they want things to get better NOW.

But, go team.
