    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I missed the designer who did Laura Bush's dress, but that's it.

    You don't remember as far back as 1993 and 1997? :p The second inaugural dress, the Oscar de la Renta, was SO much better than that big old purple thing.

    I have never watched an inaugural - ever. No interest.

    To my taste, this one is the ultimate; Oleg Cassini designed it for Jacqueline Kennedy. She wore it to a concert the night before the inauguration, and wore a dress made from her own sketches by Bergdorf Goodman for the inaugural ball.

    Me neither--Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan out-shined all of the first ladies in class and dress for the last 30 plus years.


    We have a real bow wow in there now--knuckle greeter and all!
