My favorite sentence from Obama's speech:

"I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition."

Service. I love it. Not "valued" service or "conscientious" service or any other qualifier. Just "service." That says it all.

I just realized today that Bush has been president for a FULL THIRD of my life. Ugh, no wonder his administration felt like it'd never end.

That said, I love the red jacket. It's so cute!

I'm always in favor of a red jacket. like I told my roommate, who bought a red jacket last year, it makes you look like you know what you're doing.

and yeah, this presidency felt interminable. the kids who won't really remember it are lucky.

it really did.

my roomies and I were just discussing last night that it feels like this weight is lifted. everything isn't fixed, but at least we don't have to worry about that asshole anymore. good riddance to the worst rubbish.

YES! it was really weird, like i know things aren't going to be perfect now, but i was so surprised at the emotional effect the inauguration had on me. i feel as if bush had held the whole country hostage for the last eight years, in an intellectual sense. i don't know, i'm having trouble expressing it. but it's like, even though i know something is true, to have the official word constantly telling you it's not... it takes more of a toll than i thought? i didn't notice it until it was over.

I think we'll be feeling waves of that for years to come.
