Obama looked so YOUNG in amongst those gray beards yesterday
When he was giving his speech I was just so taken at how young he looked. Almost like a puppy. And then with Michelle they looked like kids damn near.
Sadly, I have no doubt he will age fast in that job. Especially with the mess W left.

1. Cherish it...
In 4 years he will look like a 55 year old instead of the 51 year old he will be in reality. And if he is given another 4 years in office, he will look like a 58 year old instead of the 55 year old he will be in reality. He has the weight of the world on his shoulders and a lot of big decisions to make to help turn this country around. Presidents age twice as fast in office as they do out of office, so like I said, cherish his youthful look now while he still has it. :)

2. Obama seems to have no problem choosing great teams
and in delegating to them. Maybe he will therefore get off a little easier than other presidents who didn't have those skills. I hope so.

5. Jane Addams must have secretly been a party girl.
Eleanor sure was!
