  Tue. 1/20/09 7:21pm Sean Daily:

Uncle Joe... what's a record?
  Tue. 1/20/09 7:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

C-SPAN is rebroadcasting the inauguration now and Aretha Franklin is singing now. Couldn't get a good connection at noon.
  Tue. 1/20/09 7:28pm Joe:

Yeah, I know...we tried in the office and it kept buffering and buffering....
  Tue. 1/20/09 7:31pm annie:

i tried three different links before i got a decent feed. msnbc. very moving experience, to be sure. and i loved the connection they used to show crowds all around the country. what joy was had in america this morning. even my son watched it.. he is a closet patriot..
  Tue. 1/20/09 7:36pm Joe:

I didn't cry, but I'm glad that there were people who were!
  Tue. 1/20/09 7:37pm annie:

i'm a softie at heart, i did... and someone said they thought they saw tears in obama's eyes..
  Tue. 1/20/09 7:54pm Sean Daily:

Okay, I've heard Jesus called many things. But a fission explosive device with a nominal yield of 15-25 kilotons that can flatten a medium-sized city? That's new.
  Tue. 1/20/09 7:55pm Bad Ronald:

I know the inauguration's about optimism and the future but I feel that the following is apropos - http://tinyurl.com/adiosdb
  Tue. 1/20/09 7:56pm Joe:
