Who needs an inauguration? We sure don’t!
In case you hadn’t noticed, Obama’s the president already. Oh, I know, there’s this silly process still to happen called the Electoral College. And yes, technically George W Bush is still president. But in reality, Obama is already hit the ground running. January 20th will be more of a symbolic date than an actual beginning.
He’s already named half his cabinet. He’s already making Saturday radio addresses (via You-Tube, no less.) He’s already shaping policies and affecting world markets.
