It's Official! 

In one word: Wow.

Here are some snippets that many Vermonters reacted to during Pres. Barack Obama's inaugural address:

"Hold true to our founding documents." No fooling? There's a concept.

"Pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and rebuild America." Ask not what your country can do for you ...

"Do our business in the light of day."  I guess the Cheney doctrine is really over.

"We reject the false choice between our safety and our ideals." PATRIOT Act, SchmATRIOT Act.

"We are a friend of each nation." Not just the willing?

"To be judged on what you build, not what you destroy." Hmmm. Maybe there is a new direction in the "war on terror"?

"We are willing to extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist." B-ipartisanship.

"It's not whether or not government is too big or too small, but whether it works." One word: Katrina.

The Nectar's crowd — replete with plenty of "community organizers" —  gave plenty of cheers when Pres. Obama had the audacity to say he would put the science back in global warming and make a greater push for moving us to renewable energy.
