Barack Obama, despite your views or politics, has shown a great example to the world, to young people, to all about how to reach out with openness and caring, even to his enemies. I am realistic about the limits of government and politics, even with a person like Obama. He's reminded us many times he's not perfect, he'll make mistakes. Still, a lovely day in America, and the world at large:

From Obama:

"On Tuesday, the world will be watching as America celebrates a rite that goes to the heart of our greatness as a nation. For the forty-third time, we will execute the peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next," he said.

The soon-to-be first U.S. African-American president in history said since the first inauguration 220 years ago, the United States has undergone many changes. But he said the peaceful and orderly transition of power from one president to another, and at times from one political party to another, is a constant that should not be taken for granted.

"For us, it is easy to take this central aspect of our democracy for granted. But we must remember that our nation was founded at a time of kings and queens, and even today billions of people around the world cannot imagine their leaders giving up power without strife or bloodshed," he said.

Mr. Obama commended President Bush and his administration for all their cooperation and assistance in this time of transition.
