History was made yesterday. You might have heard about it: a guy named Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America. There was no way to put the moment into words. I was soaking up the sounds and images since Saturday’s Obama Express, but the inauguration ceremony was something I will always remember. Where were you when? ← I got that. So do you. Anyone sitting on the outside of this living history has a foot in the past or is ignoring the future. Last night it was inaugural ball time.. three quick highlights.
The first stop was the Neighborhood ball. It was there that Beyonce sang “At Last” and the First Couple had their first dance. Unfortunately MSNBC cut into it. I channel flipped to no avail. Not one network was carrying the thing. Maybe it’ll pop up somewhere else.
Barack and Michelle Obama: First Dance
*It’s at the end*

The soldiers at the Commander and Chief ball sounded like they were enjoying free cocktails and the teleprompter delay simply added to the fun → (confusion?)
“That is What’s Called.. Old School”
The youth ball was the livest spot. I’m giving you his speech, but stick with it until the end. Barack and Michelle dance again. When they finish Barack grabs the mic and says.. “That is what’s called.. old school!”
