    Oh, this should not be that hard for you. If you want re-read the thread, think about previous inauguration speeches in American history's past, and stop feigning ignorance.

    It's a tradition that we as a nation should keep. It's a tradition the represent that our democracy works (regardless of your man won or not) and shows that power can be passed peacefully from one administration to another.

    My sentiments exactly, and this goes back to the George Washington days...We were trying to escape this regal-ness business....what happened ?

    Why are the speeches important? Are people not aware the guy is a douche by then?

    They frame the upcoming term, include policy proposals, and that message is sent straight to the public. You should know this by a quick perusing of political history.

    The second question is irrelevant.

    They largely do not, no. It is also still informative for those who are knowledgeable.

    That doesn't mean that huge parties on the public dime isn't a staple of royalty.
