It was great to get to be on the Mall during the Inauguration. It was freezing cold but, in the crowd you couldn't feel it as much. It was fantastic to get to be part of that historical crowd. I have to admit that being part of such a huge and such a peaceful crowd was one of the most usual experiences I've ever had. I have to admit that I'm cynical about all the expectations that are being thrust upon Obama but, I am truly impressed with the way that this country peacefully passes on leadership. That is an example worth following.
