President Obama's politics of inclusion have galvanized the world, and brought it's peoples together like no other American President before. "We are One!" as Barack Obama has repeated over and over, is a new and wonderful concept that the world is ready to seize, and make it's own. January 20/09, The Inauguration of President Obama is a day which will be celebrated in history, like the birthdays of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King. As a Wintertexan, (Canadian in the summer, Texan in the winter) I am absolutely thrilled to be included as One, within this Great Country of The United States of America. Pictured is a Flag of Inclusion which fly's proudly in The Alamo Palms R.V. Park in Alamo Texas USA.

Hi Barehugs, I am not an American but I've waited and watched the inauguration rites. It was 1AM in my country. Obama's acceptance of office is truly something to be remembered in history with the message of unity and powerful message of "YES WE CAN" worldwide call. We cannot prevent and even control economic or social challenges today but with unified actions, indeed, "YES WE CAN." Learning from Obama's life challenges, he is an outstanding inspiration to all. Cheers! JNY

As the world continues to shrink, we need leaders like President Obama to bring it all together. Peace and Unity to make the world a better place, without the fear of war, hunger, and disease. Equality for every race and color. God Bless President Obama.

i m not american, but i can feel my nerves and senses like any other american who listens to obama's speeches with supportive mind. i had several apprehensions about obama leading the US while he was contesting with JOHN Mccain, but now after listening to his victory and swearing-in speech I feel like he can even lead the world together. he is a true inspirator for everyone. he will lead with confidence and also input confidence among fellow citizens and other world i pity myself for not watching his speech live

At first we all were a bit skeptical, after all he is a black man. But we soon got over that, didn't we? Hes a man who instills confidence in his audience. Of course we will have to wait to see his actual accomplishments. But I for one do not have any doubts. He will do all and more. God bless President Obama!

I was busy doing other things, but found myself sitting, watching, and listening to this Master of the Oratory. President Obama is a Maestro of Eloquence seldom heard since Abraham Lincoln.

Hi barehugs, This man seems to have excited the imagination of the world like no other President has ever done, and as a Canadian I am very proud to share this continent with the US. As I watched today and than listened to his speech, I saw once again the hope of a better day. The "We are one" message is getting out to the world and I hope that people embrace it as Americans have embraced Obama himself. There is indeed hope although I know that in many ways there is a rough road ahead. Blessings.

Interesting isn't it, how all things lead to the Good? After 8 years of Bumbling Bush-isms, Wasteful Waring, and Inherent Ineptitude,it has finally come down to this.Just as Bush has brought the world to it's knees, Obama the man of the moment, of promise, and purpose, proposes to pick up the pieces, and put it all back on track once again. There are very few who doubt his ability. I for one, would bet my bottom dollar on his ability. President Obama is "Man of the Year," on my Calendar, and there are still eleven months to go!

I guess you are all for Obama and that means you are for repealing the Defense of Marriage Act, repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, for discriminating against doctors or nurses who will not help abortion, for adoption by homosexuals, for giving homosexuals more privileges, for not protecting babies who survived abortions. If you do a through search you would have found out that he was the most far left president and after he is through, America will be more like China. I just hope you are proud of your choice. When you see the American military being defeated time after time after this, who are you going to blame? Bush is no longer president remember?
