Video: Four prominent historians share insights on significance of a second term for Obama

LatinaLista — With all that was written or spoken about President Obama's inauguration for his second term, there's probably no commentary as insightful and interesting as that offered by some of our nation's historians.

Their unique perspective in being able to draw from not only history's past presidential inaugurations in comparing yesterday with today but also knowing the events of those times, the mood of the country and what was happening personally with the leaders being sworn in presents a fuller view, and a few predictions, as to what impact a second Obama administration will have on the nation.

Recently, the White House invited four historians to share their perspectives on Obama's inauguration.

Doris Kearns Goodwin, Robert Caro, Michael Beschloss, and Douglass Brinkley shared their thoughtful analysis on Obama as they compared his presidency with some of his predecessors whose second terms changed the course of U.S. and global history.
