Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address.

With Obama’s Inaugural Address coming up next Tuesday, here is a word cloud, where larger words are words more frequently spoken and smaller words less frequently spoken, (courtesy The Smithsonian) of what has been deemed the greatest Inaugural Address of any president (Lincoln’s second) wherein he spoke these words:

“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”
