The inauguration speech of President Obama held the world spellbound. It was a historical moment and everyone wanted to be a witness. As I was listening to him, I couldn't help but remember the late President Kennedy who was a charismatic leader too like President Obama. Do you think there are other similarities between them, aside from being president of course? What are your thoughts on this?

I think they have totally different backgrounds with the same intent. I understand though how Obama came from more humble background and probably has some first hand knowledge of what it's like to go without where Kennedy came from a very rich family.....as far as them being similar I don't think I have seen enough of him to notice the similiarities. Both are charming, younger, vibrant.....but as far as what they think.....I really don't know.
