Thanks! Interesting about Jan. 20. I didn't know they would be sworn in before the Inauguration!

3. Fun fact: Obama will become only the second president ever to take the oath four times...

He took it once on the steps of the capitol in 2009, but had to retake it because of a Roberts' flub - and will take it again on the 20th and 21st!

The only other president to take four oaths was FDR.

7. You should drop a note to Roberts about that and thank him for being

such an incompetent ass. I'm sure he's appreciate it. LOL
