    In these so called terrible economic times, the best thing that fool Obama could have done was set an example of fiscal responsiblity by having a small well contained inauguration spending as little money as possible, rather than this circus costing a fortune. A total waste of money and I for one am totally disgusted.

    That would have earned Obama some respect by those who are leary of him! Having a modest event would have been a greate example but, lets don't forget he's a Democrat.

    And, we are rich! These guys can sling around billions of dollars like nickels because, IT AIN"T THEIR MONEY! Heck, we can just continue to print more money.

    I haven't watched any of it nor will I watch any of it!

    Geez for all that money you think they could have gotten PDiddy to sing ....

    and you think he could have managed to memorize the oath of office. If thats the best he can do without a teleprompter then the late night shows will have lots of material.

    He did memorize it.

    Apparently the Chief Justice fed him the wrong words, which is what led to the momentary comedy for ya'll.

    This may be the first inauguration I've been able to watch all the way through in real time. The ceremony was interesting, the speech was interesting in that it was a little tougher than I expected and though there were parts I disagreed with in terms of message or tone it certainly had some things to think about in it, Aretha was a treat, and Yo Yo Ma is a national treasure.

    Like him or not, approve of the hoopla or no, it can only be a good thing that it went off smoothly and peacefully.

    Some of my friends call me jaded, which kind of hurts my feelings; checking out this board makes me feel like a wide-eyed grinning tourist by comparison. As a whole I found it quite engaging and inspiring.

    As an added bonus, Mr. Obama held off enough on the Lincoln allusions that he did not take the oath in tails and a stovepipe hat. After the train ride into DC, a few of us here in the heartland were just a little concerned about possible fashion references...

    From MSN.Money---

    "Financial markets gave Barack Obama no presidential honeymoon.
    As the nation's 44th president took office from George W. Bush and walked up Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House on a cold, sunny afternoon, deepening fears about financial companies battered stocks to two-month lows.
    At the close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 332 points, or 4%, to 7,949.
    The percentage decline was the biggest ever on the first day of an administration. That broke the old record of 2.9%, set on Nov. 22, 1963, when Lyndon Johnson took over after John F. Kennedy's assassination.
    The Nasdaq Composite Index shed 88 points, or 5.8%, to 1,441, and the Standard & Poor's 500 Index dropped 45 points, or 5.3%, to 805.
    The market's close was the worst since bottoming on Nov. 20, and there was talk late today that U.S. stocks will head lower. "
