Obama's Inaugural Address was inspiring and yet strongly unsentimental. Here is my favorite line so far:
...there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task.
Reminds me of the medieval Persian poet Rumi's line to the effect that when the body suffers, the spirit rejoices.

Also: if any conservatives take the time to actually listen to it, they should be surprised at how conservative the sentiments are. Especially coming from an America-hating Muslim socialist.
