While I wish I was standing with Chicagoist, 60 yards from Barack Obama at the inauguration—I was nice and warm in my apartment, working from home in Brooklyn. Still, the moment seemed bigger than anything I’ve ever witnessed.
When i was in Connecticut over the past weekend my dad surprised me by finally telling me who he voted for. I was getting worried he supported the McCain/Palin ticket, but then he pulled out the sign that he had apparently stuck in our lawn in Vermont during the campaign season. I was so proud I had to take a picture.
