How Wonderful Was That?

And how much did I cry?

Even Rick Warren wasn't that bad. What's the deal with Roberts screwing up the oath? You might think he didn't want Obama to be president :-).

I thought the poem was a bit disappointing but the quartet was amazing. Beautiful music, brilliantly played, accessible to anyone, and does any musician look as *happy* performing as Yo-Yo Ma does?

The speech - inspiring, moving, *smart*. The history geek in me wanted, when he said, "Now 44 Americans have taken this oath" to have him add "and two of them were Grover Cleveland" but I guess it would have ruined the solemnity of the occasion.

The benediction was lovely, I thought.

A beautiful ceremony. And a wonderful day.
