The day before the great day..

Tomorrow Barack Hussein Obama will place his hand on the Bible and take the oath of office from Chief Justice Roberts. I will be in the crowd watching and will probably be in tears. His elevation to the highest office was something that even true believers like me doubted (mainly because we just did not want to be crushingly disappointed like 2004). But he pulled it off!!!

It is such a relief to finally have a serious, thoughtful and intelligent man as President. For 8 years we have allowed the Office to be tarnished by a mediocre man, who with his reverse Midas touch, managed to turn everything he touched into ashes. We wish Bush godspeed as he travels to Crawford and we pray that he finds fulfillment doing the things he does well such as clearing brush, jogging and walking his dog.

We got to Washington 4 hours ago. The city is abuzz. You can just feel it in the air. At dinner people are talking about tomorrow and strangers are asking me if I am going to the mall. Its a beautiful time to be here. Finally after the long darkness, after the vicious adn divisive partisanship of the last 8 years, hope has come to us.

We wake up early tomorrow to catch our subway downtown....Hope to get in around 6 am and get a good seat. Will post more tomorrow evening
