Hanging with soon-to-be Mr. Prez at the Lincoln Memorial

Just time for a quick note as I’m on the go. Today I hung out with Barack Obama  on the  National Mall. There was a really cool “We Are One” concert with U2, Beyonce, Jack Black, Ashley Judd, Forest Whitaker, Garth Brooks, Samuel L. Jackson and a ton of other folks at the Lincoln Memorial. It was free and open to the public. About 750,000 turned out. Check out the crowd that stretched all the way back to the Washington Monument:

Every time the screen flashed to the Prez-elect, the crowd went wild:
