CNN Hosts Wowed by Obama's Second Inaugural Address

During President Obama's second inaugural address on Monday, some CNN hosts couldn't hold back their amazement on Twitter.

"Obama sounding more and more like Martin Luther King as this speech goes on - powerful, rousing rhetoric. #inauguration," tweeted Piers Morgan.

Soledad O'Brien drew from Obama's linking the civil rights movement with the push for gay rights. "'Seneca and Selma and stonewall'. Linking civil rights fights... Then equal pay for women, gay marriage, voter suppression, immigration. Wow,'" she admitted.

Before the speech, Morgan gushed, "One inarguable fact about #Obama - the rest of the world finds him articulate, engaging, intelligent and a great figurehead for America."
