Good morning! Over the next 90 minutes or so, I will be adding notes here from time to time; at about 9 a.m., I will begin continuous posting. It will be a snapshot approach, bouncing among the various channels covering events.
By 7 a.m., much coverage was in progress. The tone is celebratory overall. I have heard numerous networks talking about security in D.C., about the weather, about the already huge crowds -- and about the Biden gaffe on "Oprah" yesterday. President-elect Obama's press secretary is making the news rounds. Ohio's Ken Blackwell as on CNN about half an hour ago. Channel 8 at this moment has a dog in patriotic garb on the set.
