Odes for Obama by American Poets

The Associated Press invited 10 American poets to write their thoughts on the Obama inauguration and put the results up on an interactive website. There's a cowboy poet, digital animation/poetry, and some vids of the poets performing their work. What's nice about the selection is the wide-range of styles, voices, and opinions. Some of the participating poets include Yusef Komunyakaa, Billy Collins, David Lehman, Amiri Baraka, Alice Walker, and others.
