President Obama's Second Inaugural

I thought President Obama gave a great speech today and I'm excited to hear what he will have to say at the State of the Union in a way that I haven't been for quite a while.  In short it feels like he is ready to lead and in so doing to strike out to win the important arguments of our time.

Instead of trying to give you some big breakdown of what he had to say I'm going to point you to some good takes from the professionals...

Greg Sargent had a good short rundown on the progressive underpinnings and current of the speech.

Ezra Klein looked at the indications that Obama is set on changing minds and leading the country into the future.

John Cassidy pointed out the push towards liberal and progressive goals and values.

And Richard Socarides called it possibly the most important gay rights speech to date.

In case you missed it here's the speech.  It was a good one...
