This was my favorite moment of the Inauguration. I watched much of the events... I really enjoy watching body language and facial expressions and the moment that touched me the most, was "the hug". It looks like Bush is hugging a son that he is proud of going off to college. I feel that the first time President Obama was briefed by Bush that he had a very big "uh oh" moment. At that point I think he realized all of the things that Bush had done was simply because he "had" to. As what is surfacing now, President Obama cannot make the promises he campaigned to do because his hands are tied, due to all that encircles him. The one thing that I have always loved about President Obama surfaced yesterday (I voted for McCain and volunteered many hours on his campaign) was the eloquence in which he delivered his speech. He is an excellent orator and his voice and delivery alone can mesmerize even the biggest Republican fan. Let us hope with God's touch, President Obama can pull the country out of its economic woes and put us on the path of energy independence. God bless us all.
