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 thatâs âsoaring 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, âFellow Citizens: The Penguin Book of U.S. Presidential Inaugural Addressesâ, and asked him if it was safe to assume that Obamaâs inauguration speech wonât be so wonkish? (roll tape# 1o.q.âparticularly memorableâ)
Thatâs Terry Golway, co-editor of the new book, âFellow Citizens:The Penguin Book of U.S. Presidential Inaugural Addressesâ. 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
