    What I want either the JFK or Obama monument to look like. Probably JFK, as he lead us into space.

    The address should be around noon EST, and watch it on PBS.

    No I think Animal Planet is going to do "The Puppy Inauguration" which is just a couple of puppies on a stage in front of some other puppies for like 12 hours

    They'll be replaying Bush's inauguration and eating truckloads of Ben & Jerry's.

    This very unpresidential photo of Barack Obama, blown up to poster size, will be rolling down Pennsylvania Avenue on Tuesday along with the most unorthodox participants of the inaugural parade: the World Famous Lawn Rangers, a 28-year-old Central Illinois-based precision lawn mower drill team.

    "We are the whoopee cushion of the parade," declared Ranger veteran Tom Bruno, a member of the Champaign City Council.

    Obama met the Rangers in 2003 at Chicago's St. Patrick's Day Parade when he was just launching his bid for the U.S. Senate. As they joked around, the little-known candidate grabbed one of the plungers that Ranger leaders use in lieu of batons. Ranger Mats Selen, a University of Illinois physics professor, snapped a picture, which everybody promptly forgot about until Obama was elected plunger-carrier-in-chief.

    Considering how much of the US is in the shitter, that picture seemss eerily prescient.

    They may also replay Glenn Beck's interview with Sarah Palin.

    His first show on Fox tonight should be interesting. "Hi, we are on the verge of a historic moment, so let's talk to someone who should have won instead. Hi, Sarah - can I call you Sarah? I've been saying that the world is going to have an economic collapse and that's why I have been buying gold from Goldline. Do you think Obama is going to lead us into Great Depression 2.0 by repeating FDR's failed policies?"

    Ahem. Sorry, venting. I'm going to try and listen to his speech tomorrow. I'll be at work but hopefully (HOPEFULLY) it will be slow enough to catch some of it.

    Edit to add: Damn our new president takes some kick ass photos. I'll forgive the lower comedic potential for that reason alone.

    I thought the Glenn Beck show was mildly entertaining until I saw the episode where he interviews John Edwards.

    No, not the politician John Edwards, the "psychic" John Edwards.
    He honestly thought he could talk to dead people and he was all over this guy's nuts.

    Dear Michael,

    Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States tomorrow, marking the beginning of a new era.

    It also marks the end of the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition, which you have helped make the most transparent, accessible, and effective in history.

    Thousands of you hosted health care discussions in communities across the country, gathering and providing feedback that will guide the Obama-Biden Administration efforts to overhaul the current system. You've participated online like never before, sharing your stories, collaborating on fresh ideas, and asking important questions.

    The Transition has also been the most open in history. Transition staff published meeting information and thousands of documents received from outside groups through our "Seat at the Table" program, and published the name of every one of our donors.

    We couldn't have done it without your active participation -- and as President Barack Obama will need your help more than ever, join his new online community at the White House and stay involved:

    http://change.gov/joinus

    Your participation in this Transition has been truly inspiring -- thank you.

    John

    John Podesta
    Co-chair
    Obama-Biden Presidential Transition Project

    Apparently there will be an online community at whitehouse.gov. D:

    "Higher pay for casuals"

    I just heard some girl on Hardball say "I hope we have more hope for America." Is that like wishing for more wishes? What I was really surprised at that no one shouted out "legalize pot" when he was asking the crowd what they wanted to see in the new administration.

    Picked up my tickets from my Congressman's office today, there were thousands of people lined up to get through security to get theirs. Then actually ran into the same congressman wandering around the mall later, had a short chat with him. There are hundreds of thousands of people just wandering around and filling the various Smithsonians to the gills. The air is almost electric, there is a sense of excitement, a sense of (dare I say it) hope, its quite infectious just to be around the crouds. I've never seen so many happily smiling people.

    Tomorrow I get up at the crack of dawn to brave the metro back into DC and attempt to get a good seat.

    I remember seeing that speech back in my senior year of high school. I also remember my government teacher coming in the next day and asking us what we thought of the DNC the night before. I answered: "I really liked that Barack Obama. I think he'd make a good president some day."

    Kind of hard to believe that day's almost here.

    It's ridiculous to think that the major news networks probably talked all over his speech. Thank William Henry Harrison I watched it on C-SPAN.

    CNN's top 2 political stories are both kinda hilarious in bad ways.

    #1 - Cheney in wheelchair for inauguration - I'd like to think that the sheer awesomeness of Obama and Biden taking power is slowly draining him of all life.

    I also think that hurting yourself moving OUT of the Vice Presidents manor is really embarassing.

    #2 - I really hope I say this in a way that doesn't scream of poor taste, but:

    Is this not the best visual representation of how Obama represents just how far African Americans have come, or what? Dance for me!
