***INAUGURATION DAY***
Barack and Michelle Obama will be greeted at the White House by President and Laura Bush right around 9 a.m. Central Time. After coffee, they will travel together to the Capitol.

Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States at 10:30 a.m. Central Time.

His Inaugural Address is slated to begin at 11:00 a.m. Central Time.
{***Politico reports that race won't be the tale he's trying to tell. Newsweek's Howard Fineman reports it will be a short speech, between 15 and 17 minutes and focus on thematics, not detail. Simple language, one-syllable words. "He wants with his rhetoric, to build some kind of vessel of hope and unity that will help us survive the storms ahead," reports Fineman.}

Immediately following, President Obama will proceed to the Capitol to sign Cabinet Secretary nomination certificates. He will then escort outgoing President Bush to a departure ceremony. Following that, he'll attend the Inaugural Lunch.

There are 10 official Inaugural Balls. The Obamas plan to attend all 10.
The Midwest Inaugural Ball will be held at the Washington Convention Center.

The Inaugural Parade begins at 1:30 p.m. Central Time.

SICK OF OVER-THE-TOP, MESSIANIC INAUGURAL COVERAGE?
. . . Part Of The Tucker Carlson"Let's Not Pretend This Is The Second Coming Of Jesus " Crowd . . .???
HERE ARE YOUR INAUGURATION DAY NUGGETS:

  • Jill and Joe Biden appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show. And, whoops. Jill Biden said her husband was offered his choice of the Vice Presidency OR Secretary of State. A spokesperson later backed away from the assertion, but wow, way to cut the pomp and majestic euphoria with some juicy news. And, if this is true, what does it tell us about our new President's thought-process?
  • PolitiFact says Obama has made 498 campaign promises. They say he's already kept 2, 1 in stalled, and another 12 are in the works. May the accountability begin!
  • TUESDAY DRUDGE BANNER: GOOD MORNING, MR. PRESIDENT.
  • Incoming Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel says it's cool to call yourself a liberal again.
  • Vice President Cheney will attend the Inaugural in a wheelchair, because he hurt himself moving boxes. Here's the ironic symbolism for the left . . . The Bush administration literally limping out of office.
  • Some conservatives aren't wasting anytime targeting the 2009 Senate Democratic Caucus. Is Claire McCaskill really the Nancy Grace of the Senate? And is that a compliment? "She clearly has a lot of fight and smarts in her," writes Free Will.
  • One Democrat has already introduced a bill to allow Obama to serve a third term. And the National Review asks, "Already?"
  • Where does Gallup put Obama on Day 1? 78% Approval.
  • The original Cable News Network gets a scoop on one of Obama's first actions as President: Abortion. But MSNBC's coverage is still waaay more fun.

I tend to agree with Carlson. This is a historical day and event and I hope Obama is a good president or even a great president. However how can anyone live up to this hype? I remember how much everyone wanted to kick some muslim butt after 9/11 and how quickly the public turned on all that togetherness. This enthusiasm will die very quickly when governess begins.
