Obama's Inaugural Address

... a nation cannot prosper long when it favors only the prosperous. The success of our economy has always depended not just on the size of our Gross Domestic Product, but on the reach of our prosperity; on our ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart--not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our common good.
President Barack Obama, Inauguration Speech
The International Herald Tribune (an arm of the New York Times) has the text of President Barack Obama's Inaugural Address as released to the media.

Commentary available at CNN, The Oval--USA Today, HollyScoop, New York Daily News, Marc Ambinder at The Atlantic, Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, Historiann, Doghouse Riley at Bats Left Throws Right, Reuters, PajamasMedia, Controversial-Affairs and many more.

Others with the text include Mahalo, Washington Post, London's The Independent, El Mundo, Susan Polgar's Chess Information Blog, and more increasing by the minute.

My youngest brother and his partner are at the inaugural soaking it up. Wish I were there, too. My brother shot this video at Garth Brook's concert yesterday.

Garth Brooks has the crowd jumping as he sang. ...It was a very inspiring environment to be around.
Gene Brake, CNN iReporter

Thanks for your link shishir. I've added it to my list of commentators above.

He is in charge now, but his power is shared with Congress and is watched by the Courts.
