Christina Wilkie, Huffington Post, Political Reporter

Topic: In 2009, President Obama capped individual donations and banned corporations from donating to the inaugural festivities. For the president’s second inauguration, there is no cap on the amount an individual can give and he has reversed himself on corporate money as well.

Richard Norton Smith, George Mason University, Author & Presidential Historian

Topic: How U.S. presidents have fared in their second terms, and those considered most and least successful.  We’ll discuss specific challenges that face 2nd term presidents; efforts to shape their historic legacies; Cabinet and personnel changes; scandal and notable controversies; and efforts to retain their political standing when not faced with reelection.
