    I will be - although that is partly because work will probably be busy because of it.

    I think the last one I saw was George Bush senior - all those years ago!!!

    I'm not watching it, it's all hype and who cares! The president doesn't really rule the country, he just does as his advisors tell him or he soon disappears. I'm not a big fan of politicians in case you didn't notice!

    I watched it, i don't know much about politics but i think he seems a good man for president, definatley a historic moment and it was quite emotional i thought. I think he will be a good president.

    You're right, he doesnt rule, he has to follow a guideline otherwise if he "ruled" it would not be a democracy, it would be a dictatorship.. but, when you vote in a president, you vote in a certain set of things he/she will carry out, that you agree with, as opposed to his opponent who would have different issues he/she would like to address..

    Would not have missed it and in fact watching it again on tv tonight. Absolutely amazing and I was glad to share that time with my students today watching it.

    He was very nervous as it was his first time administering the oath of office. He apoligized to President Obama later. Barack had memorized the oath prior to taking it.

    I love politics, im such a geek - before i dropped outta uni my degree was politics and international relations and i loved it. Obama is exactly what the US needs - and don't be fooled, he does have some power, there are so many loopholes in the American system - how dya think they went to war with Iraq without congress agreeing?:)
    I loved it, and I'm really pleased he's in!!
