Obama's inauguration

Among many bright aspects of Obama's inauguration, there were two very nice ones:

1. Sandwiching Obama's oath with two pieces of art and litreture. Imediately before Obama takes his Oath, a classical piece by John Williams was perfomed by a quartet of world class musicians (Perlman, Ma, et.c). And right after Obama's swearing, a piece of poetry was performed. It was clearly an indication of Obama's stance towards fine arts ....

2. The great moment that Bush-Cheney took the helicopter and left the US politics. Obamas and Bidens perfected their gentleness by escorting them .... And I took a deep breath for the end of Bush-Cheney's nightmare era!

And don't miss these two photos of the day: (1) (2)

PS: I read in BBC that in North Korea no media has mentioned anything about Obama's inauguration. In the comedy Communist state Obama's name has been mentioned only once in the last 6 months and that was 3 days after he won the election. Isn't it great to live in such a state!?
