Well I am feeling a bit weepy but thought it might be the pregnancy hormones - hehe!

TheDevilWearsPrimark Tue 20-Jan-09 16:47:34

I'm stunned there is only this thread about it, it's a huge deal!

SmallShips Tue 20-Jan-09 16:47:35

He (Obama) couldn't keep the smile off his face, he looked so proud!

PenelopePitstops Tue 20-Jan-09 16:48:25

DaddyJ Tue 20-Jan-09 16:49:57

Great show so far..

I started crying as soon as I saw all the people and haven't stopped yet blush
It's so emotional isn't it!

This religious fella is a bit cringe-worthy though. I keep expecting him to say "dude"

TheDevilWearsPrimark Tue 20-Jan-09 16:51:10

The old lady in the hat. I do hope he can right all those wrongs

Poledra Tue 20-Jan-09 16:51:37

I've got goosebumps watching this - how must he be feeling??

SmallShips Tue 20-Jan-09 16:51:49

Get to the good part! I want the speech!

sarah293 Tue 20-Jan-09 16:52:00

TheDevilWearsPrimark Tue 20-Jan-09 16:53:22

mrsbaldwin Tue 20-Jan-09 16:53:40

I am liking his little daughters sat behind him - the younger one looks very proud and important

TheDevilWearsPrimark Tue 20-Jan-09 16:53:53

Yeah, don't sweat the god stuff

TheDevilWearsPrimark Tue 20-Jan-09 16:54:16

Lio Tue 20-Jan-09 16:54:43

I seem to have lost all control of my emotions now!

It may be a stupid question

but why is it god ave the queen with different words?

SmallShips Tue 20-Jan-09 16:55:28

They put us too shame with their ceremonies! Love how patriotic they are, we need a bit of that.

charitygirl Tue 20-Jan-09 16:55:32

Well I'm tearing up for Aretha!

sarah293 Tue 20-Jan-09 16:55:56
