WASHINGTON - Political analyst Larry Levy from Hofstra University joined News 12 Long Island’s Danielle Campbell to discuss President Obama’s address at the inauguration.

Levy said the president’s speech was inspiring and touched on the issues that were more practical. 

In his speech, Obama talked about continuing the economic recovery, moving forward on climate changes and gay rights. 

Obama used the term ‘We the people,’ several times in his speech. The term comes from the Declaration of Independence.
