Crazy OlyVil Inauguration Coverage: A Different Day Edition

January 20, 2009
Check out that Motorcade.

Check out that Motorcade.

Hillary and Bill Clinton have just arrived at the Capitol. Rachel Maddow mentioned that this very easily could have been a very different day, referring how close Hillary was to taking the nomination from Barack. Man, AIN’T THAT THE TRUTH.

George HW Bush and Barbara are walking around with the Clintons now. Bush I looks.. weird today. I don’t know, it’s strange. Maybe cos it’s so cold there.

THERE’S JIMMY CARTER WALKING OUT NOW. Aw, little old people everywhere.

I’m trying to upload photos but they’re coming in slowly, understandably.

Oh, I love this.

Oh, I love this.

Sasha and Malia Obama just walked out to a roaring applause. They are cute as all get out, let me tell you.

Chris Matthews just compared the crowd at the Capitol to… a chia pet. “Because it just GREW overnight!” Uh, random.

The moving vans are at the White House right now, unloading all of the Obama’s things. THAT’S PRETTY HARDCORE. Gettin’ right on it, folks.

Oh WOW. George W. Bush is walking out right now to a chorus of booing, and HEY HEY HEYYYY, GOODBYEEEE. That must really, really suck, man. Michelle Obama just came out and was introduced but it was lost over the emphatic boos from the crowd, directed at Bush.

But Michelle looks beautiful.

The President and Vice President are walking out and being introduced right now. FINALLY. LETS GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD, FOLKS.

THERE’S BARACK. He’s getting ready to come out right now and the crowd is going INSANE. He looks confident and proud but definitely like there’s a weight on his shoulders. Joe Biden, however, looks like he’s having the time of his life!

So is Rahm Emanuel, apparently. wtf is this!?

So is Rahm Emanuel, apparently. wtf is this!?

Hello there, Jesse Jackson and "unidentified attendee."

Hello there, Jesse Jackson and "unidentified attendee."

Holy crap there’s trumpet fanfare and EVERYTHING. I wanna be President. OH YES. HERE COMES OUR BOY, GUYS. They introduced him as Barack H. Obama, which is understandable, I guess. He’s walking out to the stage right now and greeting dignitaries and other people.

Senator Dianne Feinstein is opening the ceremony, and making remarks on the journey to this moment.

And now we bow our heads as Rick Warren gives the Invokation.
