6. President Arthur 1881-1885
Assumption of office

President Arthur took the oath of office twice. The first time was just past midnight at his Lexington Avenue residence on September 20 by New York Supreme Court justice John R. Brady; the second time was upon his return to Washington two days later.

8. Here`s more info...
The article notes that both Calvin Coolidge and Chester Arthur took the oath twice. But both men were vice president at the time and Arthur, who was sworn in immediately, decided on a formal swearing in when he got back to Washington.

7. Well, I found an article on this in the Houston Chronicle online, and it
says it's an AP story, but I can't find it on either the AP or Reuters site...

well, hopefully he did so we can move on.

9. It`s confirmed...
Statement from White House on Re-Administering Oath of Office


The following is a statement from White House Counsel Greg Craig.

"We believe that the oath of office was administered effectively and that the President was sworn in appropriately yesterday. But the oath appears in the Constitution itself. And out of an abundance of caution, because there was one word out of sequence, Chief Justice Roberts administered the oath a second time."
