It is hard not to get excited by any inauguration where the reigns of power are getting handed over to the opposition party peacefully. The greatness of America is illustrated by these events, whether it be 1980, 1992, 2000 or 2008.

At least for a day all of Washington can get together and celebrate America. And we can hope that, given the challenges that face our country right now, that this feeling could last longer than a few days. (Whether we actually believe that is something else entirely.)
