The Inauguration

The Inauguration of the 44th President of the United States of America took place today. Barack Obama is now the US President. He begins with two advantages – he follows an awful President and he has a lot of the American people behind him. Obama becomes its first African-American leader - in a ceremony in Washington DC watched by millions around the world and an enormous crowd in Washington itself. As he said “A man who sixty years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant now stand before you to take this sacred oath.”

As Andi concluded:-
“Today is an exciting day, a hopeful day, a joyful day. An historic day for every one of us no matter what party, race, religion, or location. Happy Inauguration Day!!!”
Good luck, America.


  1. Interesting typo in the quotation!

    In fact an interesting situation all round.

    I'm not sure that the advantages of following a President who was quite so bad and left such a terrible legacy for the world are not outweighed by the disadvantages.

  2. The typo - "Scared oath" has been amended!!!
