ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Dozens of Georgian's gathered at the Democratic Party headquarters in Atlanta to watch the Presidential Inauguration.

"As a Georgia Democrat, I felt like I needed the fellowship to be together with my fellow democrats here in Georgia so we could get the energy ready to push through the next four years," Pres. Barack Obama supporter Elliott Smith said.

All eyes were on Obama as he was sworn in for a second term. It was a moment Cheryl Poinsette Brown and her children wouldn't have missed for anything.

"Today's a sense of celebration. Relief in that I know that we have a leader whose heart is right. He has the right team and I know we're moving in the right direction," Brown said.

Supporters predominantly agreed that our nation's priorities during the next four years should be the economy, gun control and education.

"We're entering this four-year cycle with much more realism as to what can be accomplished and how to bring this country to prominence once again," Georgia Democratic Party Spokesperson Eric Gray said.

Many of the supporters also told us the inauguration was even more special being that it fell on the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.
