You can zoom in to an astounding degree, and see that Justice Clarence Thomas has gone to sleep, W is pissed, Laura’s smile is even more frozen, the twins get it and are unhappy, and Bill Clinton is listening intently. W and Cheney get a comfy seat with a little table with a carafe of water. Fascinating.

If you were not one of the 2 million people watching the inauguration on the Mall in Washington, you could watch the spectacle on any number of television channels. Flipping between ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS would have yielded different commentary but largely the same mood: euphoria, awe at the magnitude of electing the first African-American president, and somber urgency about what confronts our financial system and the world. Yet, even as Obama warned of a difficult road, the crowds were wildly enthusiastic, and millions were moved. Main Street has turned a corner.

The Inauguration was a huge, fun party on the Mall. The John Williams arrangement of Simple Gifts was a fitting accompaniment.
