_iluvtwilight44_: Well...since I was at school I watched some of it! Mostly around the part where Aretha Franklin sang!
_Lioness-Keladry_: I just thought the jury was a bit foolish to mess up

_totalharrypotterfan_: Did you see Obama forget part of the oath? :D
_harryobsessed_: I agree. Obama's awesome! I glad he was elected.
_Lioness-Keladry_: I just wish I could live in the white house!
_Rob_Stacks_Staffer_: @totalharrypotterfan - that was pretty funny, i couldn't figure out if the judge messed up or if he did
_fabchick_: It was Judge Roberts who messed up!
_fabchick_: I read in the newspaper today that they did a second oath, like a re-do.
_kid reporter Caitlin_: @totalharrypotterfan : I did see him forget part of the oath. Did you hear he took the oath again yesterday?
_dizzyd512_: the judge forgot the oath first. i think obama got confused!
_totalharrypotterfan_: @fabchick I don't care it was still hilarious!!!
_Lioness-Keladry_: I liked the inagaration a lot
_dizzyd512_: hi princessdaisha!

_totalharrypotterfan_: @princessdaisha: Uh, no. I really liked Palin though.
_princessdaisha_: cause he is the first african american and he is bringing back history and letting everyone know that african americans can do anything caucasion ppl could do
_kid reporter Caitlin_: @totalharrypotterfan: I liked Palin too!
_dewpoint_: when he became the president, on a Lebanese local channel had this whole documentary on Obama, and what pple did around the world as a reaction, so if i recall a person in Indonesia, or somewhere there, looked exactly like Obama! they made an interview with him(the guy)!

_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @dewpoint and Stacks_Admin: I never heard about that. What happened, exactly?
_dizzyd512_: i think there will be a lot of obama impresonators
_Lioness-Keladry_: I thought it was funny he had to do the oath again
