Political Woodstock (…ctd)

Wow. What a ceremony. It really looked quite huge, graceful and important.
Obama gave a relevant, powerful speech, and didn’t focus too much on emotion as much as he focused on the future course of action and the personal responsibility everyone should assume. Good job !

but I ask : why was the christian faith promoted so much? I realize the traditional aspect of this, but I also know that not all presidents decide to go this way and some are just affirmed, rather than sworn in. This was, to me, the only problem with the whole inauguration. Kudos to Obama though for including “non-believers” in his speech.

Is it just me or is the Obama inauguration looking more and more like a huge rock concert? : Glamour, major artists, concerts, performances, huge anticipation, huge crowds, sold-out tickets, hope, love, peace, optimism fun, a mega star (obama), music, singing, dancing, worlwide telecasting, blogging,  etc… etc…

For my part, I can only see the positive side of this. A jolt of enthusiasm and fraternity is all the american people – and the world- need and deserve in these tough times.

I’ll be definetly watching that speech at noon… It’s going to be quite the speech.
