We can’t all be packed in like sardines at the inauguration on Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take part. Thanks to the fine folks at hulu.com we are providing a live feed of inauguration coverage with all the speeches and the swearing in right here in Blogcritics.
Whether you love or loathe Barack Obama, this is one of the biggest political events of the new millennium and this will be a chance to see it all and share your opinion as events happen. It’s like being there, but you can have a beer and put your feet up and be part of history.
The live video feed starts on Tuesday the 20th at 9am and will continue until 1:30pm EST. Live blogging will be handled with a handy chat widget from coveritlive.com which will be active starting at 9am. We’ve invited various Blogcritics writers and editors as panelists. Expect the serious discussion to start around 11am EST, but feel free to stop in and discuss the parade in the morning. Obama takes the oath of office at 11:55 EST and the inaugural address will start shortly after noon.
If you scroll the page just right you ought to be able to view the video and chat in the same screen.
