President Barack Obama 2009 Inauguration and Address

Past week America made another history. Barack Hussain Obama took oath of office and he became President of America from president elect. A African American on the post itself is big change in the history. Nobody had thought this day would come true soon. A hard working man from "not good family-because of his father and mom" achieved this success in dramatic way.

He has shown hope to not only the people of America but also to the people of world. There are number of big problems America is facing and he has to work hard to fix these problems. There is no guaranty that he can solve some of the problems but I think he will try his best. The above video is his Oath taking ceremony and his address to millions of people who waited for hours in cold weather outside the place.

All the best Mr. Obama.
