Welcome to the Washington Post Opinions team’s inauguration-watch party. We’ll be providing running commentary during the swearing-in ceremony, President Obama’s inaugural address, the parade and other events in the nation’s capital today. Our writers on the scene include: EJ Dionne, Dana Milbank, Joel Achenbach, Kathleen Parker, Charles (“Chuck”) Lane, Ed Rogers and Alexandra Petri. Most of the rest of us, like many of you, will be watching on TV. Please stay with us and refresh for updates — we’ll be posting tweets in reverse-chronological order, so you don’t have to do lots of scrolling. And please dive into the comments section and tell us what we got right, what we got wrong and what we missed.
