Question: Would you make the effort to attend the Palin inauguration?

I'm still pretty busy and not had much time for analysis of current events, so I'll post a question out there for you.

Would you attend Sarah Palin's inauguration should she be elected as POTUS?

It will be a monumental event, especially if it's the next term. It will end Obama's socialist/communist agenda then and there (and after only one term!). She is a strong conservative and the polar opposite of him policy-wise. Every sane person will breathe a sigh of relief when she's elected. Not to mention the fact that she'll be the first woman president.

I've thought about it a lot. Personally, she's my favorite candidate (of course) and a huge personal inspiration to me. I waited in line for hours in the dark and braved sub-30 degree weather to attend her book signing. I've written this blog for over two years following her career since the 2008 election. I've read her books, watch every speech I can, read transcripts, watch her interviews and TV appearances. I will help with her campaign should she run, in any way I can. But that's all from the comfort and convenience of my home and local city.

By 2013, my daughter will be two and we'll most likely not have taken a family vacation yet. I don't know if we could take her to a big event like that with her being only two. However, I think it would be an important event for her to attend and say she was there later in life. But if we don't take her, I don't even think I could go alone and leave her at home. Also, would it be worth the cost? On one hand, it's something we could watch on TV. On the other, it's a monumental point in history that I would greatly love to see in person.

I don't know. What do you think? We've always said that if our favorite sports team ever ended up in the championship game/series we would go, since it doesn't happen very often. Sarah Palin being inaugurated as POTUS would be on an epically larger scale than a sports team, to me. Would you travel to attend her inauguration, or the inauguration of someone you really liked and inspired you? If so, who?
