Farewell President Bush. An exciting day today as Barack Obama is sworn in as America’s 44th president. Watching the news on TV – it appears Washington is overcome with optimism and hope today as millions head to the capital to witness the historic event. Local TV stations KCRG and KWWL have sent reporters to DC and are frequently updating their blogs. It’s interesting to see the behind the scenes of the local journalists and how little they are operating off of.
