TUES TOP 10 LIST – Pres Obama’s Inauguration

January 21, 2009

Blogging while watching the Inauguration of the 44th president of the United Stated. The 44th time the leadership baton has been peacefully passed. Most Americans take that for granted – most of the world doesn’t.

Here are 10 thoughts while watching the inauguration:

10. Everybody looks cold – glad I’m inside, not in DC.

9. I need to pray for President Obama and his family.

8. Rick Warren did a great job. Reciting the Lord’s prayer was good. I know he’ll be glad to shed that coat & tie.

7. “The triumph of civility.” I think Obama’s civility is a big reason he got elected. When all candidates were biting and devouring each other, Omaba remained dignified, respectful and civil towards all opponents. I hope Obama’s brand of respect and civility finds a permanent home in American politics. While I have a hard time finding any of his policies or promises I agree with, I do like and respect the man.

6. George and Larua Bush are good and gracious people. I bet they are glad to leave DC and return to Texas.

5. VP Chaney is in a wheelchair b/c he hurt his back moving boxes. Why was the VP moving his own boxes? Budget cuts? Surprised they didn’t send a yellow cab to pick him up.

4. Lowlight was that weird poetry reading. What was that about?

3. Loved Dr Lowrey’s benediction! I hope I’m still preaching and praying at 87.

2. I’m thankful to be an American. i hope you are thankful for your national heritage.

1. I’m glad I’m called to the pulpit, not to politics.
