    As if we needed any more evidence of Obama's tremendous popularity, comes word that last night's interview gave '60 Minutes' it's largest audience in 9 years.

    Just wait until Jan 20th, early estimates suggest there may be as many as 1 million on hand in DC for Obama's historic inauguration.

    LBJ had 1.2 million I think, think Obama can break it? I will be on hand as well, I got a ticket. I am debating if I will battle the crowd.

    This is history, Obama's election and inauguration will be written about and celebrated years after we're all dead. Just think, years from now you can tell your children or grandchildren that you were there.

    I'll be more proud I didn't go! :D

    I'll tell my children the reason people are dying in a socialist hell, is because of the blithering idiots of 2008 :D

    Maybe not you, but I have a feeling many that didn't support Obama will be claiming they did when they talk about it in the future. Like with any historical event, as the years go by more and more people claim they were there...of course many of them are lying.

    Yeah, i watched it and it really surprised me how his marriage with Michalle is only an arrangement. These 2 don't have anything in common. She's a total biatch and it shows how this guy has always been someone else's puppet...

    He lived in a ridiculous apartment while he lived in DC and Michelle wouldn't even visit him there. Talk about not having any type of sexual relationship... :confused: Nowonder he went with that dude in that Limo...:D

    I will probably go just because I have never been to an inauguration. My dad was at Kennedy's, and it is neat to see his ticket from it.

    My Uncle gave me a coin from the Bush 2000 inaguration, with AF1 on the backside.
    It is pretty neat, he is an ex-crew member for AF1 and while he could probably get tickets to any of the inagurations, as far as I know has attened only for Republican Presidents.

    I have had the chance to be in DC 3 times, each of them very enjoyable. My favorite attraction is the air and space museum. I have had the chance to visit the annex at Dulles once. That was probably better than the original on the mall.
