Barak Obama Inaugural
My inaugural photographs. OK ... it is cheating. But I couldn't get to Washington, D.C.
Michelle Obama holds the Bible on which Abraham Lincoln took his oath of office in 1861 as her husband, Barak, takes his oath 148 years later. Supreme court clerk William Thomas Carroll purchased the Bible for Lincoln's inaugural when the family Bible did not arrive in time from Springfield, Ill. Obama is the first president to use the Bible since Lincoln.
