US President Barack Obama’s Inauguration

Congratulations to the US President Barack Obama and US Vice-President Joe Biden!

I just finished watching the Inaugural Address of President Barack Obama, the new President of the United States of America.

I normally do not write anything about politics but I though that it was a historical event not only in the United States but all over the world. I never watched any inauguration of any of the US Presidents. It was the first time and in fact it was indeed amazing being able to somehow witness an event like that even if I was just watching it on television.

It was just past 6 o’clock in the evening here in Switzerland, around 6:07 p.m., when US President-elect Barack Obama took his oath on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. Right after he took his oath as the new President of the United States of America, he immediately delivered his Inaugural Address.

Among those who attended were his wife Michelle Obama and their children, the new US Vice-President Joe Biden, the new US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the former US President George W. Bush among others.

I thought that the Americans were not ready for an African-American President. The event that just happened only proves that the Americans indeed have matured.

President Barack Obama has a tough job to do and I hope he will be able to keep all his promises. People are hoping for a change. I hope it will come true.
