Tomorrow's news today:

The skies were greyer this time around, and so were the hairs on President Obama's head. And when the nation's 44th chief executive took the ceremonial oath of office for his second term Monday, gone for good was the 2009 version of hope wrapped inside a vague promise of "an end to the petty grievances and false promises" of U.S. politics.

This year's model came with an exciting new feature: A wider field of vision.

In a concise inaugural address that was arguably the best speech of his presidency, Obama offered a shockingly bold, full-throated liberal blueprint for tackling climate change, expanding gay rights and voting rights, reforming immigration and preserving Social Security. In doing so, he aggressively challenged the tea party philosophy, insisting that government programs "do not make us a nation of takers."
