Yes We McCan!
Sorry. As I watch the inauguration concert on HBO, I can't help but wonder how this celebration would have gone down had McCain won. How many people would have convened at the Lincoln Memorial? Or would a McCain inauguration be held at a different location? What musicians and celebrities would turn out for McCain? Ted Nugent? Britney Spears? Who?
I also don't ever remember tuning into an inauguration event before in my life. Nothing comes to mind. I get that this is an historic event, but how much hoopla normally surrounds an inauguration? What happened with Dubya? With Clinton? Anyone know?
Regardless, it's inspiring. I got chills when Marisa Tomei addressed the crowd.
Gotta go. Queen Latifah is speaking.
