This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

Barack Obama claimed his place in history as America’s first African-American president yesterday, summoning a dispirited and divided nation to unite in hope against the “gathering clouds and raging storms” of unfinished war and grave economic woe.

An estimated 1.8 million people in Washington, DC watched President Obama take the oath of office and deliver his hotly-anticipated inaugural address. As of late yesterday afternoon, two senior law enforcement officials said they did not know of a single arrest on the National Mall.

In one of his first acts in office, President Obama has ordered the U.S. government to suspend prosecutions at Guantanamo Bay for 120 days. Papers filed at the prison camp said the request is made “in the interest of justice and at the direction of the president of the United States.”

Former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush have landed in Midland, Texas, the former first lady’s hometown and her husband’s childhood home. “Today is a good day for the Bush family. We’re back in Texas, and we’re here to stay,” Bush told a cheering crowd in downtown Midland.

Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) spent the night in a Washington, DC hospital after suffering a seizure yesterday afternoon during a luncheon for President Obama. Doctors believe the incident was brought on by “simple fatigue.” Kennedy was awake yesterday, talking with family and friends, and feeling well.
