Bruno, I remember well Maya Angelou's reading on the steps of the Capitol at Bill Clinton's inauguration. The symbolism, both poem and person, was moving.

Billy Collins gave a wonderful explanation of the job during a radio interview with Terri Gross - he explained that the position exists so that any US poet in danger of saying something important or influential is prevented from writing for a full year by the demands of a travel and speaking schedule. I'm having some trouble imagining Donald Hall handling the request for a hug well... :-)
