WASHINGTON: A very enthusiastic, often emotional group snacked, drank and watched the proceedings outside on big screens. Below are VIP seats for the parade (we’re at 15th and Pennsylvania – I’m only here because my husband works here). But what surprised me was the huge round of applause when the Bushes’ helicopter took off, not to mention the rush of cameras to the window to document the moment. There, no more bi-partisan snarkiness from me! I’m moving on.
