Live from the Convention Center Inaug Party

January 20, 2009, 12:00 am
By SFR Staff
You know, I remember the inauguration speeches of my childhood as tedious, long winded, bloviated things, full of promises subject to interpretation, thumb-twiddling, watch-checking affairs of pomp and ceremony, but altogether, a welcome break from math or science or social studies, whatever subject lesson was scheduled for noon EST.

This time...it's enchanting, entrancing, less mass hysteria than mass euphoria. These people here--and indeed, I--are effin stoked.

Here are my tweets up until the swearing in:

swingstate Hugs and tears evolve into chants as Obama so help me gods. January 20, 2009 10:08 AM
swingstate IT's passed noon, and though he hasn't sworn in Obama has not been proclaimed president by Wolf Blitzter. Convention crowd go nuts.

swingstate wow...New Mexico democrats also give up the love for Yo Yo Ma.
