Well, during his inauguration I was losing some faith, wishing that Hillary was given the nomination, but after today I feel much more confident in Barack Obama. He's vowed to close Guantanamo Bay within the year, and has also wants to increase renewable energy sources within the next three years. For his first day, that's an exceptional start. We'll see how the rest of his first 100 days goes, but so far, it would appear he's doing his best and, most importantly, keeping his campaign promises. I'm also happy to see he's addressing the most pressing issues first.

Oh, and Michelle's dress at the Inaugural Ball was ugly. Yes, she brought a young designer into the public light (and the Smithsonian) but she did a disservice to everyone. That superfluous  strap looked too small against her broad shoulders, the color was blah, and the detailing was overly whimsical and fussy. She needed a richer color like a plum or burgundy, or a jewel tone, and something in a satin or taffeta. There's been so much emphasis on her "style" but that's bullshit; they're only saying that, and making comparisons to Jackie O, because she's the first first wife in a while who wasn't menopausal and in dire need of a pantsuit. Girl needs to step it up if she really wants to compare to America's Queen.

Obamarama. I can't help but be excited for them. Obama has such a personality, and Michelle's dress is beautiful. Its delicate and sweet and takes her Sheryl Swoop factor down a lot. It was the biggest day of their lives, and they did great. Don't be such a hater ma.

I agree about the dress. I've noticed more than a few times she needs to pay attention to what she wears. Her clothes are often to tight and make her shoulders look large. She'll figure it out they all do!:)
