I will catch the highlights tonight but we got our first stick on the ground snow and I'm going out with my camera today because we don't get much here. On the other hand, because of that snow, kids are home from school so I think more will watch.

No. I left the country so that this wouldn't be my problem anymore. Maybe in 8 years I'll consider returning.

<MODERATOR NOTE>
Let's not have discussion with this thread for either vote. That's bound to take the thread in directions that will make it off-topic here and on-topic for Politics and Other Controversies.
nope,I'll be in class from 11 to 8, but I'll probably stop by the student center and catch a few glimpses of it between classes.

But the rest of the inauguration? No, I have better things to do than watch people jump up and down and scream about how happy they are.
I agree with you (and I think I know what you were referring to?).

I would, however, watch anything that pertains to the real issues this country is facing and Obama's plan to fix it.

Trust me, your problems (and these are your problems just like the rest of us), will follow you wherever you move. It's not just an "American problem".

Default I won't watch

Not that I don't care, but I am working and don't plan on watching. Throughout the whole pre-election / election process, I watched very little. I read some and discussed some but...Campaigning candidates are my least favorite as I feel they are merely telling me "what they believe I want ti hear." It seems to be the ultimate lip service. I sincerely hope that ethnicity is a positive in this historic time. However, all the rhetoric and racial harmony in the world won't mean anything if certain economic trends are not corrected. These are tough times and I wait anxiously for the days to come. Obama certainly has his hands full.

So let's all get behind our first Hawaiian born, half black president and hope he assembles a team that can improve our economic future, among other things.
