I feel a weight lifted. It's 45 minutes into the Obama presidency and I feel lighter though nothing has yet been done.
The speech was wonderful. It was direct and pointed at the times, inspirational and, I think , that like most of Obama's big speeches, it gave hope and also indicated that we, as Americans, have a responsibility to ourselves to make things better than they've been.
I wish I had a glass of wine to toast to the new era of American greatness.
