Was anyone who did not vote for Obama moved by how many people were at his inaugeration and the fact there was not one arrest?

I did not vote for him, but after seeing the inspiration and the hope he has inspired as well as the peace and the togetherness that was apparent in the crowds, how can we not have hope with this man at the wheel. How could he possible turn his back on so many people who believe in him and are moved by him. I am almost ashamed that I didn't see the real need for Americans was to have hope again. I didn't realize so many had lost hope. I am actually fully turned at this point that no matter what the future holds for Americans he is the one who was suppose to be President. NOT EVEN ONE ARREST. NOT EVEN ONE INCIDENT. TRULY AMAZING.

  • What smoke did he blow? He said their is a lot of work to be done, is that smoke? He said it is going to take all of us to make a difference, how is that not true? Some would say that it would be a typical liberal, including me a short time ago that would say I'm just going to sit on my a$$ and let the government take care of me. I hardly think anything about what he said denotes that kindof change. So I ask again what smoke?

  • We are missing the point, there were no riots there were no demonstrations, FOR ONCE IN was PEACEFUL when it came to politics. How can we not appreciate this. I don't remember when Clinton was Inaugerated or Reagan but I remeber demonstrations during the Bush Inaugeration, and I liked Bush. So tell me when the last time there was this feeling of security that we've had with a President by so many Americans, I would like to know. It does appear he has the majority of the population at peace and what America needs now is CONSUMER CONFIDENCE.

  • I thought it was nice that there were no incidents of stupidity at the inauguration. Possibly the reports of extreme security and the screening/scanning of everyone there was a help. It is nice to see people acting nice at a public event instead of acting like a bunch of animals, however it is achieved.

  • There may not have been any REPORTED arrests at the inauguration, but there was some gang activity and fatal shootings in one of our nearby cities.

  • I'm sure the "riots" will begin when Obama doesn't deliver! The Kool-Aid hasn't worn off yet...but it will.

  • I'm touched by the American hope that this country now has. I voted for McCain but it was a tough decision. I'm hopeful for our countries can we not be. I hope that our new President, as charismatic as he is, can turn our country around with the tools he's given and with the help and hope that he has inspired in so many people.
