It's Inauguration Week...

It's time to make a change! Photo by USA Today.

It's time for me to come out the closet. I'm a Barack Obama supporter. While this blog is normally about the lighter side of TV, I'm caught up with all of the Inauguration coverage.

What's so wonderful is the diversity of coverage. I'm so glad that journalists are recognizing that he's the people's president and not just the BLACK people's president. I love the fact they while they are focusing on African-Americans and asking what this moment means to them. But they are also asking ALL people what this means.

It's a scary time to be an American. Foreclosure. Layoff. Staycation. Bank failures. Pension funds. Crash. These words are sadly heard daily and I have a feeling it's going to get worse but at least there's hope on the horizon.

I wouldn't want to be Barack Obama for all the money in the world because we're in bad times. But if we're in awful times, there's no other person I'd rather have leading us right now.
