If you can stand to see more presidential inaugurations, look no further than Metafilter. They have a list of all the presidential speeches that have been on video. When I looked at Teddy Roosevelt's speech, I was confused at first because there was no sound, but quickly realized that since it was 1905, of course there wasn't any. If you are looking for the text of past inaugurations, look to Bartleby.com. If you think Obama is in any way similar to Kennedy, you might want to check out Ask not : the inauguration of John F. Kennedy and the speech that changed America by Thurston Clarke.
