Day One: Color me Un-impressed

Day One of our new administration and so far and I'm not impressed. So much talk and emphasis has been placed on Mrs. Obama's outfit for the swearing in and her inaugural gown. She looked lovely. That's it. Lovely. I wouldn't use adjectives like "hope or change" when I describe her looks yesterday. She looked lovely, nothing more. I'm not being a hater but I saw a jacket dress yesterday and a ball gown last night. I didn't see "a ray of sunshine" or a "beacon of hope" or anything else. Let's not over-analyze folks. She woke up in the morning and got dressed like the rest of us. The Today show has spent hours this morning discussing Mrs. Obama's decision to go w/ a young, undiscovered designer and how that's indicative of what type of First Lady she's going to be. blah, blah, blah. She looked lovely. That's it. Oh, and BTW, pick a freakin' dog already.
I also did NOT appreciate certain points of Mr. Obama's inauguration speech. I found it tacky, rude and disrespectful for him to bash the prior administration while Mr. Bush was sitting a mere few feet away. Tracy Lev & I had this conversation the other night: I'm very, very disappointed in the "experts" and plain ol' folks that say GW will have one of the worst presidential legacies. These last 8 years were not easy =I would NOT have wanted to be in charge on 9/11 and the days that followed. I think GW was goofy as all get out but that made me respect him even more. He just always appeared approachable. As as good president should be. He (or someday "she") needs to be in touch w/ the citizens of this country. I loved it when he posed w/ the cadets graduating, the volleyball gals at the Olympics, etc. Good lord, the man has the weight of the free world on his shoulders, he needs to cut loose every once in a while. I loved seeing him w/ his daughters and I loved his relationship w/ his wife. She's so classy and elegant and maintained her composure at all times. Not a hint of scandal w/ Laura Bush, nothing controversial about her. She didn't have a hidden agenda like Hilary Clinton (i.e, her medical plan and later her own political aspirations). Laura Bush was simply there to support her husband.
