New collection analyzes every presidential inauguration speech
An aide to Barack Obama told Politico yesterday that the President-elect is nearly done with preparing for his inauguration speech next Tuesday. With at least three drafts behind him, the aid says Obama is striving for a tone that’s ‘soaring but accessible, simple but inspiring, urgent but confident all at once.
Last week Obama delivered a major address on the U.S. economy that was heavy with concrete details. Earlier this week, we spoke with Terry Golway, the co editor of the new book, “Fellow Citizens: The Penguin Book of U.S. Presidential Inaugural Addresses”, and asked him if it was safe to assume that Obama’s inauguration speech won’t be so wonkish?

That’s Terry Golway, co-editor of the new book, “Fellow Citizens:The Penguin Book of U.S. Presidential Inaugural Addresses”. Barack Obama gives his inauguration speech next Tuesday at 12 noon, and you can hear that address live here on 88.5FM .comments powered by Disqus
