    Default HISTORY IN THE MAKING *America Set To Welcome A New President* Thread

    Well in just a little more than 14 hours the first African American president will be sworn in and a new era will begin for all of us and our children's, grandchildren's and great grandchildren's history books will be re-written.
    Regardless of your political views, this has to be a day to be proud to be an American. We will be seen in a whole new light throughout the world and hopefully some of those great expectations many of us will be met.

    God bless Barack Obama and God bless the United States of America.

    I'm just glad that this happened in my lifetime. Wondered all my life when the country would finally be accepting enough to accept a black president.

    Not someone I would've voted for but I'm glad that barrier is finally broken and I'm willing to give him a chance to see what he can do for our country. Still, hopefully the conservatives will have their heads screwed on straight come the next election! Unless of course Obama proves to be a miracle man, getting our country back on our feet while still preserving conservative ideals!

    Although I did not vote for Obama, I get a bit emotional thinking about what his election means to this country as a whole. This will be historical day for sure. Growing up I never could have imagined such. I am glad my daughter gets to see this. I plan on watching the ceremony with her tomorrow. I can only pray for him and his family and their safety and that he leads this country in the right direction.

    Just wish I could stay home tomorrow to watch the swearing-in, but then again we're going thru such tough times now that I feel good about being at the office and WORKING unlike so many who cannot right about now.

    Tomorrow is, indeed, a historic day. I didn't vote for Obama, but I wish him nothing but the best in the coming years. The fact that an African American is about to become president is something all Americans should celebrate.

    Tomorrow will be a cool day. Definitely history in the making. I'm glad to be able to watch it (on TV).

    I wish President Obama well. I hope he can live up to the expectations that he and his party have set. I have to say though, that I still do not get the absolute mania surronding Barak Obama(except for the historic nature of electing a half black individual to the highest office in the land). It's like people are ready to start chipping away at Mt. Rushmore for him and he hasn't even taken the oath. Anyway, good luck Mr. President and God Bless us all.

    I was so damn proud on election night I had a huge lump in my throat. I appreciate very much that even those who did not vote for Obama in the election still acknowledge the historical context of his inauguration.

    For those worried about all the praise that has surrounded him thus far--don't fret; on Wednesday reality kicks in, and he is a sitting president the same as all before and subject to all the heightened scrutiny that comes with the office. The expectations are high and the challenges monumental. I know we all hope for the best.

    Many references to Lincoln floating around Washington right now. Obama's train took the same route to D.C. that Lincoln's took, and he will swear the oath on Lincoln's bible.
    One of the commentators on This Week said Sunday that Obama wants to be a "Writer President" like Lincoln was.
    And Lincoln was a good one, too. Another thing that was taken from us when Lincoln was shot is his future as a writer. He had started out good, and was getting better and better.
    Everyone on the news has been referring to Lincoln's second inaugural speech, which is, indeed, a masterpiece. However, I have found myself thinking more of the end of his first inaugural. It seems more appropriate to me:

    I am loath to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.


    Let's work them angels, yo!

    I might get a chance to see this as well.

    The brand new truck, with just over 6,000 miles on it, has it's first mechanical failure. The air suspension isn't working. All four air bags on the drive axles won't inflate.

    So I'm sitting in Sterling, IL, outside the International dealer, waiting to get in and get fixed.

    I hope I get to witness this historic event.

    It's significant to me in that it shows that MLK's "Dream" speech was not
    just rhetoric poetry, but something that can indeed be actualized if we rise
    to the ideals of our chosen system of governance. 'Let us not judge a man
    by the color of his skin, but the content of his character.' Truly historic.

    And not to be a morbid arbiter, but I hope the SS are on their toes today...
