The Inauguration

I must be the only person in the world who didn’t get up at 3am to watch the palaver, nor did I catch any TV, radio or newspaper reports.

I think that Barack Obama has a lot of promise, and I am truly inspired that Americans have looked beyond the colour of a man’s skin and seen the content of his character – and then voted for him. And I am thrilled that the Bush years are over (please tell me there isn’t a cousin waiting in the wings somewhere!).

But to call him the hope of the world is a tiny bit rich.

What I am really excited about, is Sasha Obama’s outfit.

Call me shallow šŸ˜‰

  1. The girls looked super cute, didn’t they? I read an article that said the clothes were from The Gap, because Michelle doesn’t want them wearing ostentatious designer stuff that most people can’t afford.

  2. just as shallow as me – I have Obama fatigue, he is the president of America – not the world, we kinda need to get on with what’s going on at home.

  3. nope you are not the only one. I have only read excerpts of his speech and that link you provided was excellent photo coverage. Better than the gossip websites!
    Im with you – Sasha’s outfit was the BEST !

  4. Nah, we were sound asleep through it (after toasting the end of the Bush era with champagne), although did watch the speech on the BBC website in the morning.
