Reflections on Reverend Lowery and embracing what is right…

On inauguration day, I happened to be off work, and I decided to live blog. I created a dozen or so posts on everything from political fashion (a new interest of mine), to a tree on the white house lawn, to the speeches and prayers being said. I was shocked when one of my short […]

Inauguration Evening: Michelle Obama’s gown

KW: The news event that many of us have been waiting for: What did Michelle Obama wear to the inauguration balls? She wore white. Which is sweet, like a young bride. And, the AP describes her gown in this way: “…a white chiffon one-shoulder gown… “Her full-skirted dress had a strap across her right shoulder, […]

Inauguration: Ending Prayer/Benediction by Reverend Joseph Lowery

Live blogging of the Inauguration by Kimberly Wilder (one green’s perspective): Joseph E. Lowery did the ending prayer/benediction. Reverend Lowery was inspired and entertaining. [Here is a link to the Joseph E. Lowery Institute for Justice & Human Rights.] He spoke of “inclusion, not exclusion” and “tolerance, not intolerance.” This seemed like a hidden message […]

Barack Obama sworn in…

Barack Obama was sworn in by John G. Roberts, Jr., Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Both the justice and Barack Obama used his whole middle name, “Barack Hussein Obama.” I am glad for that. It was rumored he might shorten it to “H” because of the controversy of his middle name being […]

VP Biden sworn in/Aretha Franklin sings…

So, technically, Joe Biden is the VP of George Bush, Sr.? Just for this moment? ;) Aretha Franklin was wonderful. I think by her repeating and intoning, she wanted to give the blessing and emphasize “Protect” and “Let freedom ring.” She wore a beautiful an unique hat, exactly what should have been worn by the […]

Barack Obama arriving at the viewing area of the Inauguration…

The chants are “O-bama!” “O-bama!”. A crew of dignataries and planners comes out. Diane Feinstein gets a loud, warm greeting. Nancy Pelosi got a pretty positive shout out, I think mixed with reservations (but I am not clear.) Obama comes from behind the doors. Amy Goodman notes the first hug is for Congressman John Lewis. […]

George Bush goes to the seating area…

As I have said before, it is such a festive day, and people are so happy for Barack Obama and the politeness bestowed upon him, there are even some warm feelings about George Bush today. (Let’s think about indicting him for war crimes next week.) But, I was thinking how happy he must be today, […]

Inauguration Day: Alice Walker and Amy Goodman comment on Democracy Now!

Okay, I think I am somewhat grassroots to have been watching the events on C-Span, which is an organization that the government caused the cable companies to set up to “give back” to Americans by providing coverage of government meetings, etc. Though, I guess the most progressive place to watch is on “Democracy Now” on […]

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 […]

Inauguration Watch: The embarkment of the motorcade

More live blogging from one green’s perspective: KW: Can’t help but notice the beautiful and imposing tree on the White House lawn, that watches over the sleek, black limos and their flashing lights. Interesting how the characters went over two-by-two with their counterparts. Lynne Cheney seemed to be exuding friendship and that kind of cozy, […]

Inauguration: Ladies and gift giving

“…and then the ladies follow behind” Overheard on C-Span as they describe the order of the cars in the motorcade to the swearing in. I suppose that when human beings and even modern families get together, there is a sense of “the boys” and “the girls” or “the men” and “the ladies”. But, the phrase […]

The Bidens

The Bidens have gone into the White House. Mrs. Biden has on a bright, crimson coat. She also has on shiny, high boots. They look a little wild for a Vice President’s wife. But, suppose she gets more leighway than the First Lady. Mrs. Bush welcomed them. Hmmm….I did not see George Bush…but it is […]

First sign of demonstrators: No abortion!

As the Obama’s leave church and get into the car, some people – some loud men – can be heard chanting: “No abortion. No killing babies.” (Wonder if those men are also against the war and the death penalty?) Even though I believe in a woman’s right to choose, I think it is funny that […]

Ew! The Obama’s are serving “bird”

Here is a very green comment: Yuck! On the menu for Inauguration Day at the White House today is “a brace of American birds.” As a beloved children’s book notes, “I like my birds in trees.” Wouldn’t it be neat if we had a green president (and here I mean very “green”, not just Green […]
