And tomorrow is the Big Day! Hail to the Change! Celebrate with your kids this evening with the Disney Channel, which is hosting the Kids Inaugural, featuring the first kids Sasha and Malia's favorite bands.

why the cartoonish pic of obama? it hits a little too close to sambo for me with the wide toothy smile and closed eyes. please next time consider choosing a real picture of obama. the media is inundated enough with stereotypical images of the african american community, especially african american males.
