One Last Look



Hawaii News Now ‏@HawaiiNewsNow

President Obama takes one last look at inaugural crowd before exiting. LIVE http://bit.ly/hnnlive01 #HINews pic.twitter.com/8RWliKbY

There was a shot of him looking out at the crowd. Just looking. And he smiled. Might sound corny, but it was really cool to see.

1. I thought he was waiting for someone,

But that's cool....shows he lives in the moment.

4. I Was Just Going To Post The Same....

seeing PBO stop at the top of the stairs and look back out over the mall - gave me shivers. He was taking it in. Savoring the moment. I would have liked to have heard what was going on in his head at that moment. This outpouring of humanity was for him and it shows the trust we have in this man and the great responsibility he has to work for us - the American People.

He's had the chance to experience this for a second time and unfortunately this is the last time. It was really - in my mind - a warm moment and a personal moment that he was sharing with himself.

On edit here - I would hope that this image of him looking back on the mall be made available - as it would be nice to have that image grace my wall in my home.

6. I think he's still a bit amazed that all those people came to see and hear HIM.

And thinking his mom would be so thrilled.

8. I'd take a long last look, too.

It's nice to see someone observing a moment with their eyes, mind and memory without holding up a goddam camera phone.

10. He was saying a prayer for 'em. You could see it in his face.

He really loves the citizens, and wishes the best for all of us.
