Live Blogging the Inauguration part 5

The speech is off to a fine start -- certainly getting right to the point without a lot of flowery blah blah blah. But I'm hoping for more poetry, some more of that oratorical skill to drive home his points that Obama is capable of. 

Okay, now it's picking up. He's getting his preacher's cadence going here at the end. A stirring conclusion to a good speech that felt shorter than that invocation.

Malia is cracking me up -- her enthusiastic approval of her father's speech was funny and touching. She seems like a great kid.
