Yeah — at last George W. Bush is OUT of the White House, and the country has been returned to the people!

I found that the new President and First Lady’s choice of a “theme” song to dance to at the 10 inaugural balls they attended last night to be so symbolic in so many ways.  I’m sure it’s a favorite of theirs — and I’ve always been a HUGE fan of the song.  Yet it also speaks of a dream, a longing for someone.

But beyond all that — Beyonce’s rendition of it is/was JUST. PLAIN. HOT!
