Quick post before heading up to an inauguration party:
DC is bananas.
The president drove past my house last night. Though I suppose technically, it was probably George Bush.
As a result of work and feeling under the weather, I won’t be going down to the Mall this morning. I feel pretty OK about it; I’d be more upset if I hadn’t seen Obama and Biden speak over the weekend. I might get crazy and walk down towards the parade route a little later.
D, on the other hand, is driving top Obama advisor David Axelrod all day today. It probably sounds cooler than it actually is; D is running on two hours sleep (he was driving around DC from 12:30-4:30A with the previous driver trying to get his pass for today) and will likely be sitting ass for most of the afternoon. However, D said Axelrod has been very nice so far and has told him a couple of interesting things about Obama:
- He vetoed the “Yes We Can” slogan straight out of the gate. Michelle insisted he use it.
- He also vetoed his now infamous logo until catching hell from Michelle and friends.
The Obamas brought the Bushes a parting gift! Maybe Axelrod knows what it is?
‘Tis all for now; need to get cleaned up and get going. Hope you all enjoy this great day.
