Must say, I'm liking his speech - it's what's needed (and I'm not American!) but the lack of response to his comments about Bush amused me.
Can I just correct the BBC commentators... from what I could hear of the music (though you insisted on talking over it), the 'Air' was Bach's Air and the 'Simple Gifts' was the old folk melody (I forget if anyone actually has their name as composer for it, because the melody itself has been used many times and has been adapted into many pieces), and thus the piece was NOT composed by John Williams. Arranged, maybe, but not composed.
If anyone asks me where I was when Barack Obama was sworn in, I was sat on the floor in my front room, infront of the fire, because it's cold in here.
