Inauguration Day is (was) here!

UPDATE: President Obama’s Second Inaugural Address from earlier today.

Today is Inauguration Day (Observed). At noon today President Obama will take the oath of office for his second term. It’s a formality. Inauguration Day is always Jan. 20, but when that date falls on a Sunday, like it did this year, the pomp and circumstance is held off an extra day. Instead, a small, private ceremony takes place at the White House.

So, for those of you who don’t have time for the four hours of parading and trumpeting today, here’s the nitty gritty that took place yesterday:

If you’re looking for live coverage of today’s ceremonies, you can find them at a number of reputable sources. I do enjoy the sound of the cannons and Hail to the Chief after the oath, just before the speech. Maybe that’s latent emotion tied to the concluding scene of “All the President’s Men.”
