I was so happy today. I loved the crowds; Cheney entering in a wheelchair like grumpy old Mr Potter; Aretha's hat; the fumbled oath; the inspiring speech; Malia's camera; Sasha's thumbs up; Bush flying away; the Get a Life Marching Band; will.i.am's "It's A New Day" at the Neighborhood Ball and Barack and Michelle dancing to Beyonce's "At Last" while everyone (including me) teared up. It was so lovely and perfect that I'm afraid I'm going to wake up tomorrow and it will all have been a dream. Please let this feeling of hope and inspiration and happiness that America has been swimming in today last.
