"The greatest progress we have made, and the greatest progress we have yet to make, is in the human heart. In the end, all the world's wealth and a thousand armies are no match for the strength and decency of the human spirit." -Bill Clinton, 1997 Inaugural address
Inauguration festivities are already well under way, so don't feel left out if you couldn't make it to Washington. To celebrate the 44th president and the beginning of his four years, here are four things (yes) you can do right now to be a part of the revelry:
4) No doubt President Obama's inaugural address will be one for the history books. Brush up on famous past inaugural quotes with this quiz. Proceed to be a presidential smarty pants all day Tuesday by spouting off quotes left and right.
3) The inauguration has a number of companies feeling generous which bodes well for us. Have a free donut from Krispie Kreme on Tuesday or 44 cent clam chowder from Legal Seafood. Or simply mark the transition with Bliss Spa's Farewell to Bush bikini wax special. So deviously clever, we had to pass it on.
2) It's not too late to throw a last minute inauguration party. Serve some of the newly elected president's favorite foods along with some red, white and blue cocktails. While all eyes will be glued to the tv, make things extra exciting with some some Obama Bingo.
1) Tuesday is certainly not all about Mr. Obama. The big question on every fashionista's mind is what will Michelle wear? Fashion insiders are buzzing over her possible selection for the ball, with many betting on a young American designer like Thakoon or Jason Wu. While the designer of the gown and the gown itself will not be revealed until the day of, take a look at what the fashion world's best designers envisioned for the First Lady. All fashion fun aside, one can't easily forget Michelle Obama will definitely be more than just a fashion icon; so take some time to mark the Inauguration on this Martin Luther King day to answer her call to service.
