Regardless of your feelings about today's presidential inauguration, there was one moment we can probably all agree made us smile — George W. Bush and that damn poncho. 

The former president had some trouble when it started to rain; he just couldn't figure out how to get his poncho on. 

But even though he was losing with his poncho, some might say he won the moment. Here are some reactions:
