A demonstration of how President Obama treated his voters even at the very beginning of his reign:
Obama inauguration 2009 3rd Street Tunnel in Washington DC purple ticket line as motorcade speeds through a crowd of people. Very dangerous. We waited in line for 5 hours to find out the gate was closed, perhaps long before we made it out of the tunnel. Thousands of purple ticket holders and line cutters disenfranchised. We didn't get in to the purple section or see the inauguration. We were very disappointed. Did I mention that there was no security or event personnel down in the tunnel?
