Ten days to go...

With just ten days to go until Inauguration, I thought I would post some of this week's videos focusing on the next president and the plans for next week.

First up is a discussion from American Morning -- Kiran Chetry talks to a psychologist about how Obama's childhood and blended family influenced him and mirrors the new reality of American life:

This has to be the coolest thing ever... okay, if you're a comic book geek, anyway! Obama stars in the next issue of The Amazing Spider-Man. Alina Cho reports:

Jeanne Meserve on recreating a famous train trip. I imagine the Secret Service damn near fainted when this was proposed, but as always, they saluted sharply and figured out a way to make it happen. (They don't get an iota of the credit they deserve.) This will be something that every person who is fortunate enough to see will remember their entire life:

(Fredricka Whitfield mentioned yesterday that her father, one of the Tuskegee Airmen, will be attending the Inauguration. This is the first time the remaining Airmen have been personally invited.)

Well, here's something you don't see every day: from BackStory, Nic Robertson gives us a look at how the reporters are trying to stay warm on the cold hillside in Israel where they have been watching the Gaza border. Anderson Cooper makes a cameo a blanket. (Thanks to Délie for the clip!)

Aww...Anderson wraped up in a blanket. How cute!

Poor Nic Robertson and his crew. I hope they're able to stay warm. They look like they could use a nice warm cup of hot chocolate.

Wow CNN I has some of the coolest programs
on the planet. Wolf was not too bad. I get the
feeling back in the day Wolf could hang with
the best of them.
