When's the last time that a day was awaited and anticipated with such vigor?
My friends and family in the States have arrived at Inauguration Day. Moving day, really. G.W. Bush is moving out, and B.H. Obama is moving in.
I'm astonished by a couple of things. First - that Bush is leaving with an approval rating of 22% (according to a report I saw the other day). This appears to really put the lame into Lame Duck. Second - that the media have hyped the coming of this day as though it were as important as the landing of the Mayflower.
Come what may, for the time being, it's the start of a new face in Washington.
