Expectations for Barack Obama s inauguration speech tomorrow are, apparently: Monumental , CNN Great 2 , ABC News High , Detroit Free Press 3 Lofty , San Francisco Chronicle 4 1 Pressure s on. MSNBC has even rolled out (insta-gravitas!) cursive-font d graphics for its reporting of The Inauguration of Barack Obama. So, better be good (as Malia Obama reportedly 5 told her dad last week).
