Daniel Klinghard, associate professor of political science at the College of the Holy Cross, talks to the Associated Press about why President Obama’s second inauguration isn’t as exciting as the first. “When it’s your first (inauguration), you’re new and people are only seeing the potential in you,” Klinghard said. “By the time the second one rolls around they’re used to your voice, they’re used to you saying certain kinds of things.”
The story ran in nearly 300 media outlets across the country including ABC News, the Boston Globe, CBS.com, the Houston Chronicle, the Huffington Post, the Miami Herald, NPR, and Salon.com.
