President Obama's inaugural speech is worth a read.  The New York Times provides a condensed version that preserves its major themes.  The primary theme is tying a progressive vision to the essential message of the Declaration of Independence.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

How serious are we as a nation about ensuring that EVERYONE--no exceptions--enjoys these "inalienable rights?"  Are we willing to act as a nation to provide these rights for all and not just a privileged few?
