Inauguration Day: Former Presidents arrive

It is so interesting to have modern technology and cameras everywhere. (oh, coverage is at www.c-span.org and at www.democracynow.org)

George Bush, Sr. said out loud what should probably never be said on a day of ceremony. George Bush and Barbara Bush were walking down a hall, they stopped a moment, George Bush, Sr. looked around and said, “Where are we going?”

Oh, well. A minor flub. Still, the organizers will probably be disappointed they left people out of the loop.

George Bush, Sr. is walking with care with a cane. It was cute that Barbara Bush and George Bush, Sr. both had on purple scarves. A sign of solidarity? Or, just a couples thing.

Jimmy Carter looks very well and is walking very dignified with Mrs. Rosyln Carter at his side. (They were just introduced and walking into the viewing area.)

I saw a quick glimpse of the Clintons. Oh, Hillary will be there as a: former First Lady, current (I think?) Senator, and momentarily to be Secretary of State.  Good for her.

[KW- I missed the Clintons entering the viewing area. Were they announced? Did they go in together? If someone knows, please post some info in a comment. Many thanks.]

(at 11:21 C-Span cuts out for me for a bit. My computer? Glitch? Overloaded server?)
