Tune in to this thread Tuesday for CHS coverage of Inauguration Day festivities across Capitol Hill. I’ll be roaming events and uploading pictures and observations on the fly. I’d also love to have this be an open thread for you toshare your hopes and dreams for Barack Obama’s presidency in the comments and, of course, keep us posted on anything you see that everybody else needs to know about, too (remember that you wizard types can use html in the comments if you want to share a picture).

An example of a thing everybody might need to know about is this – Inauguration Brazillian-Style Street Party on Capitol Hill in Seattle! – don’t know if it will actually happen but looking forward to it if it does.
My hopes and dreams? I’m looking forward to new dignity and a president who seems to care about earning our place in the world through ideas and ideals, not brute, animal force and fear. It will also be so nice to be able to listen to him speak without the gut-wrenching cringes of the past 8 years. How about you, neighbor?

out the tv for the big show.
