Yes, I cried  
So proud. Great speech, great moments, great history in the making. YES. WE. CAN!

And to think it all started for me for real when I heard his speech announcing his candidacy. He never, ever let me down. And I believe he won't.

Oh, you're not alone. I bawled my eyes out. Kept forgetting I'm not American.

Well, considering the rest of the world gets to hate Bush, we also get to love Obama. Never thought the day would come when I envied America its head of state, but boy do I now. I suppose Britain isn't generating a lot of its own hope so we try to pinch yours.

It truly was an amazing speech.

I loved it. Humbling ceremony. And it was fascinating to go back and read your post on candidacy - especially the "I’ve been there long enough to know that the ways of Washington must change," with the change theme popping up right from the beginning.

Although I don't agree with all of his politics (he's a conservative Democrat, I'm a lefty radical), I do think he will be very, very good for our country. And I believe him when he says that we can fix our country and make it better, together. He's such a leader and I really admire him for it. Plus, he wrote his own speech, which in politics is like O_o.

I didn't cry, but I still can't get over the fact that we have President Obama.

That's the key word: TOGETHER. I love so much that he's encouraging us to come together to make America the great land it truly can be, in that way he is inspiring us in the best way possible because he's challenging us to challenge ourselves.

His speeches are amazing. In just a few years, he's already delivered a handful of history-will-remember great speeches.

It's been SUCH a great day thanks to Obama. I cried too; I'm so proud.

I watched as soon as I got home from work until about 1:30. It was fantastic. I especially enjoyed the flubbing of the oath by Roberts and (sorry, I know this isn't very "together"y of me, but) the booing of Bush and the singing, "Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, hey hey hey, GOODBYE!" by the crowd at various intervals and when Bush boarded the aircraft. I had a teensy twinge of *almost* feeling sorry for him, but then I came to my senses. I had to turn it to FOX briefly to see their reactions and was amused to hear someone snark that the speech had nothing in it that "should be etched in granite". Sour grapes!!
