example, john mccain is a senator. john kerry who lost to george bush is a senator. al gore who lost, remember that just a little bit in 2000, he was the vice president, so he had to be there. and one other interesting note is that speaking of bush, george w. bush and george h.w. bush, father and son, neither will be here. george 41, the older, was in the hospital. he was just released. the younger said that he is not coming because he wants to be with his father. we know, covering george bush, he likes to stay low-key, and this is not the kind of thing that he likes to come to for lots of reasons. last time he was here when he was departing the white house, it was mixed when you look at the public perception and the public reaction to it. but i think that, you know, he likes to stay out of the limelight even at traditional events like this. >> think about it. george h.w. bush was here for both reagan inaugurals, then his own inaugural, bill clinton's inaugural. i'm not sure we had a bush at the second inaugural. both were governors. the bush name has been around a lot. >> since 1997

putting fannie mae and freddie mac to stop the lawsuits. george bush went to harry reid and nancy pelosi in december of 2007. he said the economy is slipping, i need a stimulus and they worked with him to give him the kind he can sign. then 2008, the terrible crisis and it was a very partisan thing in which the bush administration got more support from democrats and republicans in the final vote. then comes the election of barack obama and mitch mcconnell's announcement that his number one agenda item is to defeat president obama. we have, i think, a productive 2009 and 2010 and then in 2010, a group gets elected in the house, in particular, we don't believe in governance. not totally pessimistic. the way to go we've seen in the last three major issues in the house, a split within the republican party where main stream conservatives of the bob dole variety have aligned with the majority of democrats. they've been opposed by a majority of republicans in the house, but not of the whole house and speaker boehner, to his credit, has been allowing a coalition to come together and i hop

the oath with a bible, and if not, who didn't? >> it did start with george washington. you might think it would continue. four presidents ha s havs have . one was john quincy adams, even though avenues devout christian, read the bible every day wanted to take the oath on a book of laws, to signal the distinction between church and state u >> four have not quincy adams on a book of laws? >> franklin pierce also on a book of law. partly we think because he lost his last child only a couple of months before the inauguration. his wife was in bereavement and he affirmed the oath rather than swore to it which the constitution -- the next was theodore roosevelt. a long time and that's because he took office after the death of the president and he was in a hotel in buffalo and apparently, they didn't have gideons' bibles around. he was the next one. and so, you look at those, three the last is lbj, who, of course, after another assassination, they had a catholic missile that he took the oath on. scattered throughout american history. >> have presidents invoked religion in their addresses

to look backwards to talk about their accomplishments in the first term. others have not. george w. bush did not talk much about his first term but decided to make a bold foreign policy statement. what are the considerations that go into choosing what you say. >> when you look at the history of inaugural addresses there are some determined by the trajectory of history. john f. kennedy gave a speech that codified the moral commitments of the cold war. ronald reagan's first inaugural speech was an economic speech. the context was inflation which was a threat to the country at that time. but most of others, bush was like that too, most of the other good ones, jefferson's first or whatever, they're really about the values that unite the country and then also try to put your moment in the broad long context of american history. why this is important and how we're led forward. without being a policy address, it says we have certain values that mean we have to confront certain problems. if i was working on this speech, which i'm not, i would address this problem of polarization, the deep

because the country was so mad at george w. bush, that any democrat would have won. it's a personal validation for barack obama. as president and as a person and as a politician. is he any different? he went through four tough years. he came into town thinking with a democratic majority thinking he could get almost anything done. his signature initiative is that health care reform. it wasn't easy. he wasn't able to get much else big done. how does he play his hand in a second term? we've seen some minor acts leading up to the bigger plays, the fiscal cliff and the negotiations. the biggest problem in washington is there is a trust deficit. republicans blame the president, the president and the democrats blame republicans for that. he's the singular leader of the country. we can all debate that. he needs to find a way to break it and start a second term. >> he joked because his drawers teenagers and want to spend less time with him and he may have more time to hang out with members of congress and back slap. has that been an issue? >> i don't see him spending a lot more time with mem

we talked about george washington. he's really become the pillar, i think, of moral consciousness for the new patriotism that obama is for. but he didn't stop with african-americans. he's now expanding it. he's talking about the lesbian and gay struggle, talking about latinos. wanting this new american patriotism to include everybody. i say there's a difference now between the liberty only form of patriotism that you her from some people in the far right. liberty and justice for all patriotism, and this speech, i think, is really going to mark that new patriotism. >> can i jump in on that other thing, similarities? king was on the whole poverty conversation and the justice, poverty, you know, next question about justice, the next thing was about poverty, but there's a connection there with obama also. remember, when obama first graduated from ivy league college, he didn't go to wall street or k street in d.c., he went and became a community organizer, working on issues of poverty. a lot of people sort of on the left would argue, and especially from the black community, argue now that
