There really isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said today. I can’t stop watching it, savoring snippets from a feast of great moments –like seeing President Obama’s resolute and solemn face just before walking out onto the West Balcony of the Capitol (what was going through his mind?), those beautiful little girls in their brightly-colored coats, Bush St. transformed into Obama St., whoops and tears of joy as the Oath of Office was administered.
Today was just a great day, and one I won’t forget for a long time. And tonight I’ll go to sleep smiling, thinking of little girls having a sleepover bash in the White House while their parents celebrate this incredible moment.

UPDATE: The Lego version of the inaugural tableau is worth a snicker.
