Obama is the 12th president in my lifetime. When I lived in Washington, DC during Truman's administration, blacks couldn't go to school with whites or eat at the same restaurants. So it was a historic day to see a black man take the oath (well almost take the oath) of President. But those who watch 24 know we've had a black president a long time ago ;-)
We watched it too...of course Leah was nursing then but it was on!
