The fat lady finally sang!

AT 12:06 today, as Barack Obama was sworn in as our 44th  president,  the long tragicomic opera of George Bush & Co. ended.   Credit Gerald Ford's memorable words as he took the oath of office on Aug. 9,  1974 to succeed the disgraced Richard Nixon:
                                 "Our long national nightmare is over."
