Today Barack Obama became my president.

I am delighted by this-- I'm trying to take mental snapshots of this day and my emotions so I can share them with my children one day, and they can tell theirs. It's historic and amazing and...

...and who am I kidding? I'm feeling annoyed as all hell.

Not at Mr. President! I love him! But at the newscasters who are pondering Michelle Obama's contribution to the world... of fashion. Now, I love fashion as much as the next chick. But if I had a law degree, two children, opinions and accomplishments of my own and all anyone ever spoke about was my fashion choices. Grr.

If Hilary Clinton was becoming president today, I don't think we'd be talking about Bill's suit.

I should have gone to bed earlier last night. I'm cranky.
