Website's Schedule of Events for Obama's Second Inauguration Yields Some Jewels

Dunno which website, I think ask.com, posting the schedule for the Second Inauguration of Obama, listed the final order of events and just who's speaking, singing, praising, and raising the nation's spirits:


Inaugural Address
The President of the United States, Barack H. Obama

Musical Selection
"My Country Tis of Thee" by Kelly Clarkson

Poem
Richard Blanco

Benediction
To Be Announced

The National Anthem
Beyoncé

The question I have is, what is the topic of Mr. Announced's "benediction": a gay poet with Cuban roots will do the poem, rewriting history in ways the Founders never dreamed possible (had they wanted to). We're lucky.  Obama at the first swearing in had Rick Warren if memory serves.
