Inauguration is one of most positive in history
There were more hugs and kisses than we have ever seen at a public function, even between opposing political forces. After experiencing other elections in which so much bitterness was expressed and sour feelings resulted, it was a welcomed sight.
And while official numbers haven’t been released as of this writing, it appears that more than 1.5 million people gathered to watch the event occur. That mark would set a record, eclipsing the 1.2 million who came to Lyndon B. Johnson’s inauguration in 1965.
The swearing in of President Obama also generated massive Web traffic, with millions of Americans tuning into the event from their hopes.
With all of that optimism, we hope that President Obama will seek to continue the comradarie and work with both parties and independents to set the country on the right paths for a promising future.
May his liberal agenda take a back seat while he solidifies further the many things that have made this country great and continues to bring a higher degree of civilization to other areas of the world that need it.
He has the backing of just about all the American people in those respects. We wish him well.
