Jesse Jackson was a fan of President Obama's inaugural address Monday.
"I think it was impressive," the civil rights activist told TPM in the Capitol. "He spoke of the American promise, and that promise is an inclusive promise. Many people from other places, but all protected by the promise. None on the margins. To me that was the thrust of it."
Jackson said he hopes Obama's second term will include a greater focus on "poverty and racial disparities," which he said would be "critical to the healing."
