    Over two hundred years of peaceful transition of power continnues on.

    Despite the polarization of our politics that has gone on for the last forty years, we can still bear the thought of handing power over to the person elected by the majority of electors in the Electoral College.

    I pray this streak continues for two more centuries.

    This inauguration makes me deeply ashamed that the people of America are of such low information that they reelected a creature that has proven that his is both vile and insane. It's like seeing Charlie Manson take the oath of office.

    Well said. Although I also hope that the EC does not differ from the popular vote as that strains the limits of our tolerance

    That's because you're unamerican and useless. And likening the president of the United States to Charles Manson is disgusting. You should be ashamed -- though I doubt you have the capacity for the necessary self-reflection

    Meh, different topic. I dont much care for Obama, but I didnt like ROmney much more.

    Why is it that Dems have nothing respectful to say about GOP officials and vice versa?

    That such a state exists so ubiquitously in our Republic is a very bad omen.

    700,000 the largest attendance of any second inauguration.
    Yes, all those protestors waving American flags and cheering.

    Are they cheering Obama's drones or King's dream?
