Thomas Jefferson’s First Inaugural Speech

Inauguration Speech of Thomas Jefferson 4 March, 1801 Friends and Fellow-Citizens: CALLED upon to undertake the duties of the first executive office of our country, I avail myself of the presence of that portion of my fellow-citizens which is here assembled to express my grateful thanks for the favor with which they have been pleased to look toward me, to declare a sincere consciousness that the task is above my talents, and that I approach it with those anxious and awful presentiments which the greatness of the charge and the weakness of my powers so justly inspire.

Thomas Jefferson: The Original Sneaky Leaker?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - When Jefferson was Adams Vice President he attended the meetings of the US Senate every day and realized that "Hey, you guys could use some rules" so he wrote the handbook that we still use today for governing the actions of the Senate. And while all of this is going on in the run up to the Alien and Sedition acts, he knows that Adams is about to propose these acts... which no one else really knows about yet. Jefferson then writes a letter to Madison to inform him about the Alien and Sedition acts while he is Vice President (otherwise known today as a LEAK). So, this just adds to the aura of Jefferson, while he is trying to secure the life and liberty of the general population he actually LEAKS secrets from the President of the United States.
