Slow news weekend in DC

No, really. There is one expected actual event of interest, which is Obama's speech. The White House hasn't given anything away, so it could be anything. There could be stuff of consequence, or not.

Beyond the speech, the rest of the weekend's story could be written in advance. No news, unless something unexpected happens. It's like the story in the paper the day after the 4th of July fireworks, or after a small snowstorm. You don't really need to read the paper the next day, nor read the pre-hype.

Now there have been some good (and bad) stories over the past days and weeks and months about what's ahead for the second term. But that's separate from the event of the inauguration festivities themselves.
