  1. Thank you, thank you. I told the Lord, I wanna a job before I go home for the holidays and he answered my prayer.
    Yeah RiRi better bring it. I LOVE her rendition of Precious Lord. Amazing.

  2. This should be a very interesting Inauguration Ceremony; he may have as many viewers as American Idol. I am sure CNN will carry it in it’s entirety. If CNN or any news camera can get on the train that Biden and Obama take to get into the city I am sure they will.
    You will be inaguarationed, if that is a word, out by noon Tuesday.

  3. Barack has amassed some of the most powerful brain power in the country. Even Elizabeth Alexander graduated from Yale and now teaches Afro-American Studies there. Wow!
