Which Presidential Inaugural Address was Best?
This question just came in from a fan of the National Archives:
"Is there a consensus as to which presidential inaugural address was the best? I recognize that in this case “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and it may be more accurate to think of the top five rather than single one out. Any advice would be appreciated."

Help a fellow out. Which Presidential inaugural addresses are at the top of your list?
