Obama's Second Inaugural: From DC to Southern California

Hosted by

Today, President Obama made his second inaugural address to the nation. In his address, he linked Seneca Falls, Selma, and Stonewall… respectively landmarks for women's rights, civil right and the rights of gays and lesbians. Environmentalists and other Obama supporters have been critical of what they perceive as the President's failure to address what they think is the most important issue facing the planet Earth. Today, he addressed the threat of climate change. How did it all sound in Southern California, the nation's most diverse region, often said to embody America's future? What was the impact of inaugural poet Richard Blanco and the benediction given by Rev. Luis Leon.
