Obama Becomes U.S President, turns page on bush years



Barack Obama took power as the first black U.S. president on Tuesday and quickly turned the page on the Bush years, urging Americans to rally to end the worst economic crisis in generations and repair the U.S. image abroad.
“Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America,” Obama said, addressing an exuberant sea of people in an inaugural speech that was optimistic but realistic about the challenges ahead.
He pledged bold and swift action to bring new life to the U.S. economy and declared to millions watching abroad: “We are ready to lead once more.”
