What I'll remember about Wednesday, the first full day of President Obama's term, long into my years, is the brief and hopeful we did it conversations with strangers, and reading the paper and the many voices of the internet. So very many of us claim him as ours. Even, graciously, those who did not vote for him seemingly pause in this sea of promise.
For all of us, there's a new dawn breaking. It's been a very long time since the country's mood was this good.
Walking through this day has been like dancing with an enormous mood of moving, breathing, rhythmic promise.
Best dance ever.
