Talk:Obama succeeds Bush as 44th president of the United States

I am a Filipino, but Obama is our Living LightEdit

I CREATED or rather anticipated to DEVELOP this article. Please help in publishing it. Cheers on Inauguration day.--Florentino Floro (talk) 10:28, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

In the PhilippinesEdit

The Inauguration is live on TV at 1030 p.m. Tuesday to 2:00 a.m. Wednesday (Philippines time). Hence, I just developed this, and you may want to continue improving after the oath-taking for review. Cheers.--Florentino Floro (talk) 14:08, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Free at last!: I have a Dream: Obama-King,Jr.Edit

Comments:Obama succeeds Bush as 44th president of the United States. This is the first time, I made a comment. It is long since I listened to King, Jr.'s full speech last night in CNN cable.

I had shared my very long speech and thoughts on the OBAMA miracle of lights on my birthday last Nov. 5[1] (Wire Forums requested me to visit the site). God bless America.--Florentino Floro (talk) 07:41, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

ReviewEdit

TimesEdit

Just a note: since the parade and other events are (as of 4:42 PM EST when I write this) running something like half an hour behind schedule, it may be premature to list the times of future events - such as when he left the White house for the inaugural balls. Also, shouldn't times be given in the US format? And some of the facts are wrong - it needs expert attention. 67.234.70.214 21:46, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

This has been addressed. Please see if it is satisfactory. --SVTCobra 01:44, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Stumbling in oathEdit

The duplicate article about the inauguration made a small note about stumbling while reciting the oath. I don't consider it that notable, but if anyone wants to go ahead and merge it... http://en.wikinews.org/w/index.php?title=Barack_Obama_sworn_in_as_44th_President_of_the_United_States&oldid=754684 --Sigma 7 (talk) 06:40, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Good suggestion. At 36 hours on, it is too late to add it now (see WN:ARCHIVE. You were right to redirect it here. It was newsworthy on the day, and could have been copyedited and published before this one. But probably no longer newsworthy.
We only had one inauguration article, but I am glad it was a good one.
