Inaugural Address Preview: What Will Be President Obama's Message?
President Obama was officially sworn in during a private ceremony today. Tomorrow he’ll take the oath of office publicly and deliver his anticipated inaugural speech. What message can we expect to hear from the 44th president?
Charles Krauthammer expects it will be non-partisan, contrary to his prediction for the State of the Union address. “It will be interesting to see if any of this animus towards Republicans or conservatives or opponents appears in the inaugural address. I would suspect
not, but with Obama you never know.”
Steve Hayes weighed in, saying, “I expect we’ll hear the president talk a lot about common ground and then we won’t see a lot about common ground in the weeks after the inaugural.”
