Cristina gets her job back

My fave bit of the inauguration ceremony wasn't when she got her daughter to put the Presidential sash on her, but a bit earlier when Cristina (dressed in black and invoking "him" for Nestor as she swore in) came into the room and was obliged by protocol to shake outgoing Veep Julio Cobos's (photo background) hand, which she did while looking the other way. Hope to get a photo of that later.

The whole re-inauguration show turned out to be condensed Argentina, the country psyche on display for the world. Flashy, melodramatic, high-handed, totally staged for TV and ultimately utterly unimportant. I loved it!
