1:39 p.m. ET: UPDATE: "Nightline" anchor Terry Moran: Inauguration Fits 'Next America'

In response to remarks about Obama's reference to gay marriage, Nightline's Terry Moran analyzes the firsts of this inauguration:

Has Spanish been spoken before? Has there ever been a bigger crowd for a second inaugural?

To me, Obama's speech, this crowd, the whole program, seemed deliberately designed to confirm the "next America"-younger, more diverse, more non-native, socially liberal-as the source of authority, even legitimacy in the nation going forward.

That's what the election was really about, deep down. And the feeling out here seems more than the usual inaugural victory lap of the party in power. It seems cultural-and historic. It's their moment. And so is tomorrow-not in a partisan sense. In a factual one.
