How many of my liberal friends currently gathered excitedly around TVs watching the inauguration also watched Bush’s inauguration? (I want it noted for the record that I’ve watched or listened to every inauguration since Clinton’s first. I probably also watched the ones before that but I don’t recall.)
An inauguration is important to our country, and is historical, and is no less important because the person being sworn in is not the person you wanted.
And, well, smacking down on the former president at your inauguration? Yeah, classy.
