I think those 2 million people freezing their faces off at the Mall in Washington DC to watch the most important historical event in my life are the luckiest folks right now. If you're not watching it, you should. www.cnn.com/live has live coverage of Barack Hussein Obama's inauguration on this day, January 20, 2009. What a day of hope, optimism, and pride, for not just Americans, but people across all nations.
I hope Obama can lead us to a more peaceful, prosperous, safer, and global village. And a tastier one at that.
