I couldn't even tell exactly when the President's motorcade passed by, but it did so very, very quickly, with Secret Service escorts forced to outright run alongside the Presidential Limo. As far as I know, the new President walked not a single step of the Pennsylvania Ave parade route until he reached the White House viewing stand.

Seventh floor GOP supporters exchange pleasantries with protesters at street level. Protesters break into chants of "Trickle Down!" and a few much less clever.

I attempted to watch the parade at 14th and Pennsylvania, across from the "Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center". I was lucky to get within 10 protester's bodies' and 2 rows of armor-clad riot cops' distance from the parade route, if that.

Muffled loudspeakers drone through the mist. We all shuffle in the mud, wipe the drizzle from our faces and strain to hear as the wind and weather mute and echo the President's speech as it lumbers through space. I listen on the radio -- crystal clear -- but hear very little. Is it too much to ask to hear one momentous presidential speech in my lifetime? If there was ever a time it was today.

Protesters line the entire parade route with the practical exception of the reserved bleachers dotting Pennsylvania Ave.
