UVA Center for Politics Says Obama's Speech Tailored to Economic Crisis

January 20, 2009

After Barack Obama's Inaugural Address was finished, the analysis of his performance began.

Members at the University of Virginia Center for Politics say the speech was tailored to the current crisis: the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars and the budget deficit. They say it was not a speech for the ages.

Cordel Faulk of the UVa Center for Politics says the President was trying to soothe the public.

"You could understand what he was saying," said Faulk. "You could connect with it, and you could feel at one with the new President of the United States."

They also say President Obama's speech was non-partisan, which stresses his goal of unity.
