If given the opportunity, would you go to the next presidential inauguration?

Some say it is history in the making. Others think it is old prophecy being fulfilled. Whatever your reasoning, why would you attend the next presidential inauguration if given the opportunity to do so? For me, I have never been to one, as a African American man I think it would be good to see this historical event. That way I would have something to tell my grandkids about, other than hearing about the facts or events in the news and haven't been able to witness things for myself.

No, I wouldn't go. I wasn't much interested in the presidential campaign, I'm not much interested in politics, I hate crowds and ceremonies, and I'm not impressed by celebrities and other famous people.

Yes, I definitely would. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I've never been to a presidential inauguration. It would definitely be a good story to your grandkids :) Best wishes to the president-elect!

If I could go I probably would. It's a once in a chance lifetime. I actually live in Northern Virginia, very close to Washington DC so if there's some way I can go, I'm going to. My boyfriend is African American and he wants to go see it, so we'll see. It's supposed to be 4 times as packed as it usually is for the past elections so I don't know how everyone is going to feel. It looks like a lot of people might start feeling claustrophobic. Haha

I might go if some one paid for it just to see Washington, D.C.
