One thing that made me smile (as I thought about this thread) is that they also talked about the number of schoolchildren who were watching the inauguration and they knew immediately that the chief justice worded it wrong......

Yes, I think he was being diplomatic. Wouldn't you think that they would have rehearsed it though...maybe together. It wouldn't have made him president anymore than you are already married after your wedding rehearsal.

I give the chief justice a pass though because it was his first inauguration as well. I'll bet it won't ever happen again.

I did find it interesting that an article in the paper said it happened to 2 other presidents during their inaugurations -- I can't remember who now -- and they redid the oath privately just to make it all constitutional. There was speculation that Obama and Roberts redid it as well.

I will tell you I know I could not have done it. How many people there? That had to be the most watched oaths ever.

Looking at the replay, I was surprised to see that he snuck the words "I admit I'm a Muslim" in there and Obama repeated them...

Did Obama use his Koran this time?

You know the only reason he used the Lincoln Bible is that he did not have one of his own.
