Obama era begins

It's a time of "gathering clouds and raging storms," Barack Obama told millions of people who watched him today as he became the 44th president of the United States and the first African-American commander-in-chief.
"That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war... our economy is badly weakened..."
But Americans can overcome the challenges ahead if they unite, sacrifice and work together, Obama said.
"Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and begin again the work of remaking America."
