It's a big night tonight as Washington gets ready for an even bigger day, tomorrow as many as 800,000 people expected.
Tomorrow morning President Obama will make the journey from the White House to this end of Pennsylvania Avenue, up here to Capitol Hill.
Then at noon, on the Capitol's west front, he'll raise one hand on the pair of historic bibles raise the other and ushering his second term.
He's gonna dress the crowd, of course, and the nation and the world be paraded, serenaded, honored with receptions and welcomed into the history books but for the first time in a long time, the first time since the second inauguration , it'll all be a formality that's because it happens on the 21st but law requires president and Vice president be swore in on the 20th.
So today the 20th, in two quite ceremonies they were.
Please raise your right hand and repeat after me.
I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of United States and will to the best to my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of United States, so help me God.
Congratulations Mr. President.
Thank you Mr. Chief Justice, thank you so much. Thank you sweetie.
Chief Justice John Roberts to administrating the oath because last time, as you well know, he fumbled the words, this time he nailed it.
President Obama using a family Bible today, tomorrow he will use the Lincoln Bible and one belonging to Martin Luther King Junior.
A lot to talk about tonight, Vice President Biden took the oath earlier.
His residence , the neighbor of observatory, Supreme Court Justice, doing the honors there.
Yesterday, though during a surprise appearance the state inaugural ball, Vice President, well, he sort of did Joe Biden, take a look.
I'm proud to be President of the United States. But I'm prouder to be Barack's…
Few seconds later, of course, he corrected himself and just a short time ago.
He, his wife and first lady and, of course, President Obama all spoke in one of the biggest receptions around 10 tonight.
The president's subject was hair, specifically Michele Obama's new bangs.
First of all, I love Michele Obama, and to address the most significant event of this weekend, I love her bangs.
She looks good. She always looks good.
It was a long journey, but we eventually arrived.
The inauguration of the President was televised.
She looked down at her wrist solemnly.
Repeat the oath after me.
I want to insure my residence.
