I’m not sure why I was watching. Yes, supposedly its history.
And that does matter to those that have that kind of global world caring view, or say they do anyway. Others only care when it matters to them directly, if it changes their lives in some way, especially some significant way. In some ways this qualifies. In others it’s much too soon to tell. Campaign promises are just promises, like many promises that are given to achieve a goal, they often evaporate from the selective memory when faced with the cold reality that bites at edges of tomorrow.

I don’t think I’ve even seen a person taking office that looked so…relaxed. It was really weird.

And was even weirder to see his young daughter with the same-looking seemingly relaxed demeanor.

Especially since there had to be record number of people there, all there staring at them. Millions of people staring at them….millions and millions of eyes….

Okay, so I can’t say I’ve watched all that many of these things. [Do the above comments apply here?]

But it did seem odd to see his demeanor. He looked… well, he looked smug.

And I thought it was interesting to see the leaving President’s face at some of the comments given in the inaugural address. He gave a little smile. One that seemed to say, ‘just wait. You’ll see what it’s really like in a short time now. Yes, indeed, you’ll see.”

As will we all, as will we all. Promises or no.
