To be human...

My favorite moment from today's Presidential Inauguration? When Obama fumbled the words while taking the oath of office. Why? Because it reminds us all he's just a man. He's human. I like human.

Actually, it was the Chief Justice who made the mistake. Obama stopped because the Justice recited the second line of the oath slightly differently than Obama had memorized it, and it threw him off.

Actually, if you watch the clip, you'll notice that Obama jumped the gun and interrupted the Chief Justice before he finished the first line. It got off track from the beginning.

Point is: they're both human. Nice to see. I really hate it when the robots start running the show.
