Recorded it on 4 different stations in HDTV format (CBS, Fox, MSNBC & ABC). And will record it on PBS later this evening.

Haven't watched it yet, though.

I don't think I've got anything that can even come close to giving this historic occasion the level of auspicious treatment it deserves. Levity aside: good luck guys'n'gals, it all looks and sounds very impressive today!

Hopefully that will be the last time we elect someone based on the color of their skin...I think that's what Dr. King would want.
