    - plug into = tap into, reach deeply into, access, touch
    - yearning (n.) = something someone wants very, very much - usually with a lot of emotion

    I don't know exactly which "yearning" this quotation is referring to, but the sentence means that the President has identified and touched something that many people in the country are hoping and wanting to get.

    If this still isn't clear, we might need more context for the quote.
