3. Sasha must have been worried it would be flubbed again

 

President Obama leaned over to her and said "I did it".

And Sasha replied "you didn't mess up".

9. Answer: They are not non-white U.S. Presidents.

10. Tradition, mostly.

President Monroe was the first, I believe, to deliver his address on the Monday after the inauguration fell on a Sunday. Other presidents have since followed - including Zachary Taylor, Rutherford B. Hays, Woodrow Wilson, Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan and now Barack Obama.
