People across the area watched the President's inaugural speech hoping he would talk about some of the things they hope he can accomplish in the next four years.

“I would like to see the President work with the other parties, not just make decisions on his own and take it all the way," said Pewaukee resident Darcy McCormick.

Without a re-election to worry about many hope the President will be able to cross over the aisle and work with Republicans for the next four years.

"It's going to take a bipartisan cooperation effort to do it, so that's what I'm hoping for," said Obama supporter Larry Stephens.

Many say the President will need Republicans if he's going to improve the economy and unemployment rate.

"I'd like to see the economy get better and jobs. I'd like to see more people get employed," said Milwaukee resident Helen Alvarado.

“Jobs. We need jobs in Wisconsin," said Daniel Weston of Milwaukee.

"Tweaking the healthcare plans would be a lot better, make them more affordable," said Dousman resident Jim Millane.

“The gun issue for one. We have to keep working on unemployment, but immigration is also important," Stephens said.
