I may not always agree with The Presidents politics and ideas. But this is one of those days when America rolls out their own equivalent of true pomp and circumstance and gets as close to a royal event as I think they can. The stunning setup at The Capitol and the huge throngs of people as far as the eye can see down The Mall, really are impressive.
I had one negative thought throughout the whole event - she did a great job, but I think Beyonce just got her payback for all her support and sycophancy over the past 6 years!
All it needed was a fly past, alot less celebrities, a family balcony wave and a lot more fancy hats, and I think I'd have felt quite at home!
