I saw the oath slip-up differently; I saw as this man who has been seemingly completely calm and cool and collected for the last two years(at least publically) finally, at least just for one second, showing a few nerves about what he was about to do, the job he was about to undertake, and the responsibilities about to be bestowed upon him.

I read it as nerves, too.

Picture the scene:

1,000,000 + People standing infront of you.
Biggest moment of your life
Potentially billions watching at home

Will you have nerves ?

I wouldnt get out of bed for less than 5,000,000 ...

I'm still too overwhelmed by the rest to really comment much. Obama's speech was amazing, and I'm looking forward to reading it and watching it again. I knew I'd be really emotional, so I went ahead and DVRed the ceremony. I'm glad I did, because I cried through his entire oath of office

He was in permanent window, split/ screen, on the fox news channel, along with an occasional picture of Al Sharpton.

Apparently it was Justice Roberts that screwed the oath up...he put the word faithfully in the wrong place, Obama knew Roberts had said it wrong, and that's what caused the confusion.

Yeah, I just heard them mention that on CNN.

Nice to see the four folks waiting for the send-off sharing a laugh.

Bye, George and Laura. Enjoy the rest of your lives.

Aw, hugs all around! That's nice.

They're saying that on CNN, now.

It really is not a big deal.


Except, I do expect some A M talk hosts to try and exploit it.

(they are a desperate, lot.)

And that's why the guy administering the oath needs to do what the one with Biden did -- short sections in a clear, slowish cadence. He made it easy to repeat, even with a case of nerves. Roberts didn't. He only cut it up into about three or four sections and rushed through it which made it much harder to follow.

Yeah, that would be a problem too.
