Oprah, Gayle King, Jon Bon Jovi, Forest Whitaker and Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin are reflecting on the excitement of this unprecedented week.

"Abraham Lincoln's inauguration, FDR's inauguration, LBJ's—there was nothing like this," Doris says. "People are going to be writing about this a hundred years from now."

Oprah says Forest captured the essence of the moment best in an e-mail he sent her at 2 a.m., just a few hours ago! "The light of a new age is here," he wrote.
