If Americans of African descent are 12% of the population, why did ABC have so many AA's as hosts, performers, and camera shots of faces. I felt like I was watching BET or a Spike Lee movie.

Where were the 15% Hispanics as hosts, performers or camera shots.

ABC should be ashamed for pandering. We get it; he is of African descent. But during his short stay in office, he is the President of all Americans.

Well Sparky, he actually is paying for it.

To answer your question Confused, your tax dollars are paying for all that crap.

Can someone tell this guy that the president doesn't party till the wee hours of the morning when he has his first defensive security meeting early the next morning. This show exactly what people have ALWAYS said, lack of experience and stupidity. This is not like his three day party leading to the inaguration, this dude needs to wake up, he now has no life but the USA. This scares me!!

Why was this considered historic?

The only one that was TRULY 'historic' was the first one.

Is it because he is half black?

But then, its not about race, right?

No man, black or white, would make you ignorant, bigots happy. You above posters are a part of the human race that cause hatred among people. Do you feel better about yourselves to belittle someone who is of a different race or political party than your own?

We are the UNITED States of America. We should pull together to make sure we become a strong, economically sound nation. You people will only deter this. And of course, by not doing so, you all will be the first ones to complain and blame the President. One man can not do it alone, he needs the help and backing of his nation. Try standing up for our country instead of spewing your ignorance. Be strong, proud Americans, get off your butts and do something constructive for our nation.

Uh, they all have parties until the wee hours on inauguration night. Have for years now. Did you just get here? Do you think Bush went to bed at 9 after his inauguration?

I can't understand why some people have to complain about petty things as who's paying for the party. Give Obama a break, he deserves to celebrate. After all he is making history now and in years to come. Get off your butts and give him a hand. He's got a long road to travel after Bush's downfalls. Be happy and proud to be an American. I lived in the U.S. for 39 years and I was thrilled to watch this on TV and I wished I could have been there to see it all.

Did you know that Obama is the FIRST African American President to flush a toilet in the White House?

No, I didn't think you did!
