As regular readers might imagine, I love all the pomp and ceremony of Inauguration Day. I was able to attend just once; I was on a research trip to Washington in 1993 and scored a ticket to the Clinton festivities. In 1989, when I lived in Washington, I watched on TV. I did thoroughly enjoy going to the Clinton inauguration, and the surrounding events. The research, alas, was a flop, although I did learn a lot (it was about partisanship and Hill staff. Oh well). But being there for the presidential turnover was a lot of fun.
I'll be over at Plum Line and PostPartisan today, for the most part...I may be able to post something here later, but I'm not sure. Oh, and I'll be tweeting, I'm sure.
Anyway, consider this an open thread on today's events, and if anyone has memories of past inaugurations, feel free to leave them below.
