As President Barack Obama prepares for his second inauguration, take a look at some of the notable quotes from previous inaugural addresses.
"So it is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world….The great objective of ending tyranny is the concentrated work of generations. The difficulty of the task is no excuse for avoiding it. America's influence is not unlimited, but fortunately for the oppressed, America's influence is considerable and we will use it confidently in freedom's cause."
-George W. Bush, Jan. 20, 2005
