The chart you need to see before President Obama’s inaugural speech

We've written plenty about the best inaugural addresses and we'll have much more to say on President Obama's speech on Monday. But, in the meantime, check out this awesome infographic that compares not only the length of every presidential inaugural but also how the president's term turned out. (We first wrote about this chart back in early December.)
