The U-S is preparing to transition power from President Obama to President-elect Trump.  Continuing our Inauguration week coverage, we catch up with a number of GOP supporters as they head to Washington D-C for the festivities.  What are their hopes and expectation for the four years ahead?  Donald Trump will take the oath of office before an intensely divided nation.  Will he seek to try and bridge that divide with his first speech as the President of the United States?   Will the speech play to his supporters or the nation as a whole?   We'll take a look at the history of inagural speeches for some possible clues.
