I Want to Attend Obama’s Inauguration
After Tuesday’s election results, a friend of mine and I decided that we would attend Obama’s inauguration day events in January 2009. Well, surprise, surprise. Did you know that you have to purchase tickets? I guess I wouldn’t know that since I’ve never wanted to attend an inauguration before. Honestly, who were my choices? George W. Bush? Pass. Bill Clinton? Yeah, I was in high school during most of his presidency.
Come to find out, I’m one of many people (obviously) who wants to see Obama sworn in, amongst other things. My choices are to pay a ridiculous amount for tickets ($500+), contact my senator or congressional representative, or I can just show up and stand in the free areas. Unfortunately, there are no free areas in hotel rooms, so I guess this means that the likelihood of my attending this event is slim to none. Boo.
