Don’t Expect The Same Thrill At Second Inauguration

“Monday will be a big day in the District, but National Journal’s George E. Condon Jr. argues that it won’t be anything like Obama’s first swearing-in in 2009. As Lena Dunham noted in her controversial campaign ad for Obama in October, the first time is special. There is always a big drop-off in crowd size and excitement for a second inaugural; Obama is not immune to that reality. But this is different from what we have seen in second inaugurals, perhaps because the first Obama swearing-in stands so alone in American history.”
