Britain Reacts to Obama's Inauguration
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 12:23 PM by sparosnare


I particularly like the Daily Mail cover - close up of Obama's hand on Lincoln's bible. Hadn't seen that pic before.

6. I wasn't expecting it about midseason
but they really came together - esp. the offensive line. I'm from PA and have been a fan since I was a kid in the 70s; no matter I live in Texas.

What do we say now though? Can't say "one for the thumb". "One for the other hand"? ;-)

8. Still waiting for that guy who wrote the "Here we Go!" song to
come up with something appropriate :-). I've lived in five different states (TX included) over the years before coming back to PA and found there are Steelers fans everywhere - even those who never lived in PA!

5. We're excited here!
Oh, the thought of a Special Relationship with someone who's got a heart and a brain - after 8 years of Mad King George! Of course, it must have been infinitely worse for the Americans - but we were affected too.

As regards the Daily Hate-Mail, no doubt it will soon be back to its usual racist anti-immigrant bigotry! But it's nice to see that Obama could even interrupt that, momentarily.

7. Yes, it is nice to see -
thanks for replying. I hope you were able to see the enormous crowd in DC and get a sense of how happy we are to have a president with a heart and a brain! For the first time in a long time, I got a good night's sleep. :hi:
