No shortage of enthusiasm as Obamas hit the streets on inauguration day

U.S. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hit the streets on inauguration Day While the crowds may be smaller than his first term , there is no shortage of enthusiasm. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JANINE JONES, PARADE ATTENDEE FROM SLIDELL, LOUISIANA, SAYING: "It was a historical moment, it was awesome, I mean awesome. It's speechless, I can't say nothing." Some came to witness history (SOUNDBITE) (English) GERI DORIS, PARADE ATTENDEE FROM WASHINGTON, D.C., SAYING: "I mean, I might have not even have voted for him but to see our president, it is just an amazing opportunity as an American." For others it was a history lesson (SOUNDBITE) (English) TWELVE YEAR-OLD KILLIAN OQUENDO, PARADE ATTENDEE FROM MIAMI, FLORIDA SAYING ON SEEING OBAMA SAYING: "Yeah it was incredible, my first time." After watching the rest of the parade from a bullet-proof VIP viewing stand in front of the White House, the Obamas plan to head to the two inaugural balls - rather than the 10 that were held in 2009.
