It seemed like after eight years of mispronunciations and fiddling while America burned, we had our hope back. Of course, it remains to be seen what President Obama will ultimately achieve, but for a few minutes back on January 20th we were all basking in the glow of What Might Be...oh, and we also got to see Aretha Franklin rocking that hat!

Here's wishing you all find your best of the upcoming year!
