Susan, the first one I saw was Earl Warren swearing LBJ in in 1965. I was extremely young ;) But I haven't missed one since (OK one, but TV reception sucks 1,000 feet underwater). Didn't really matter if I liked or agreed with the guy being sworn in, it was the meaning of the ceremony itself. A public, peaceful transition is the basis of democracy. I'll let others complain about extraneous things because I know tomorrow it will be a current affair. Wednesday, it will be history.
