As previously mentioned, Irish bookmaker Paddy Power had odds on what phrase President Obama would say first in his speech.
Turns out it wasn't "Change has come", which was favored at 8-1.
Instead, the first sentence out of his mouth included the phrase "As I stand here today", which was tied for third at 12-1 odds.
The speech went eighteen minutes and 26 seconds, not as long as the favored 22-25 minutes.
Didn't see Oprah during the speech, which was also favored at 7-4 odds.
In fact, I didn't see any celebrity once the President began speaking, only average Americans, which was probably the point.
Also, I was wrong. President Obama quoted Washington, not Lincoln.
