Same. That was 80% for the candidate and 20% for saying goodbye to Dubbya. No disrespect meant to Biden because I am excited about him but this is roughly the opposite.

Personally, I am not 20% excited for Biden. But I will absolutely take it.

While I voted for him I am not a huge fan of Biden but I also have to say I was emotionally moved as he was taking the oath.

how i'm sure many q anons wish this day would have turned out:
biden is about to take the oath when village people's macho man interrupts. murmurs come through the crowd. anderson cooper is heard saying "it can't be. by god, it is!" trump comes marching in accompanied by a marine battalion. most of the stage appears stunned while pence grins ear to ear. trump takes the stage and the marines restrain kamala and biden. trump shakes pence's hand. both men are smiling. the shake goes on a little too long and pence tries to withdraw. trump pulls pence in close not letting go. he whispers something in pence's ear and pence's face turns to horror. trump pushes pence back but still grips his hand. kick, wham, stone cold stunner. then trump turns biden. he tells the marines to let him go. "he's mine." biden puts up his fists like an old timey boxer. trump does the same.. they circle each other. joe drops his fists. trump does the same. both men smile and embrace in a big hug. biden raises trump's fists in celebration. justice roberts brings out the presidential belt and joe presents it to trump. kamala is screaming while still restrained "no, joe!" dr jill biden walks over to kamala, softly strokes her face in comfort before winding up and slapping her. the marines haul kamala off while she sobbingly screams "why? why, joe? why?!?" trump stands triumphant on the stage holding the presidential belt aloft as the bidens hold up the ok sign behind him and "hail to the chief" blares. pence still lies on the ground unconscious. fade to black. opening credits to burn notice start.

If Biden's press secretary doesn't open their first presser with a joke saying that todays inauguration was the highest attended inauguration in history the administration is a failure.
