I just settled into one station for the speech. It was the one he has been warning us about for months, one about getting to work, and facing hard times. It didn't inspire or move me the way some of his other speeches have, but it was the speech needed at this moment. No sugar-coating, as someone said before the speech.
Again, CBS rushes into reaction, then has to back off for the close of the ceremony. CNN and MSNBC have shots of the crowd thinning as the ceremony winds down. The older Obama daughter seems restless during a prayer.
Great colloquial ending to the closing prayer.
