I don’t think I have been as glued to my television as I have been this morning. This has been a totally awesome morning for this country. Not only is this a great day for those who fought in the 60’s and before for civil rights, but, as a native of the Chicago area, I’m proud to see someone who has been dedicated to serving the people of Illinois become the 44th President of the United States.

For those who haven’t seen it, MSNBC has an embeddable version of the speech:

“After 8 years, George W. Bush is leaving Washington.” – Dianne Sawyer, ABC News.
