President John F. Kennedy delivers his inaugural address after taking the oath of office at the Capitol in Washington in this Jan. 20, 1961, black and white, file photo. During this historic speech Kennedy wagged his index finger as he said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." When President Bush delivers his second inauguration address on Jan. 20, 2005, he may be as hard pressed as most of the rest to say something truly for the ages. Not many have, even the first time around. Among the 43 presidents, Lincoln, FDR and John F. Kennedy are the acknowledged greats in inaugural oratory. In perilous times, their power of communication produced transcendent words that inspired not only those who heard them, but generations to come.
