my favorite lines by far were, "security eminates from the justness of our cause" and then "the question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works". Those were the two most important idealistic lines of his speech. On the whole, it wasn't a happy picturesque image that he painted. A lot was a knock on George Bush, but his deliverance was most excellent. The seriousness of his speech represents a change to take thing seriously and endeavor towards progress.


Having watched the whole Inauguration ceremony live on CNN with classmates, I am truly touched and inspired by President Obama's inauguration address, by the American spirit. Although yet an American citizen (getting my naturalization fingerprints tomorrow =D), I am proud to live on this land of freedom and proud to be an imminent American in the months to come.


I think the power of the inauguration is best measured by your reaction, Daniel. The most politically cynical person I know has been moved to knew faith in the country? Now that's saying something!


I personally have never trusted the government for anything throughout my life and believed that politics were for corrupt rich men who wanted to advance themselves by using sly and immoral tactics. For the first time in my life, I have trust in our country. Obama will be good for us all. He genuinely seems to have a heart and is concerned about solving our current problems, not just pushing them back for the next generation. He is not just an American; he is a world citizen.


Great comments everyone. I have been so interested in how people have reacted to the events that transpired on last Tuesday. Isn't it great when you know you are living through a series of events that are absolutely going to be historically remembered for generations and centuries to come.
