Stage is set for President’s inauguration

A dress rehearsal was held Sunday in the Nation’s capitol with stand-ins for the President, First Lady, and daughters Sasha and Malia.

This year’s ceremony is not expecting as many people as four years ago, but numbers could range from 600,000 to 800,000 people in attendance.

Nearly 2 million people were present for President Obama’s inauguration in 2009.

The president will actually be sworn-in on Sunday at The White House, but the large-scale oath-taking ceremony takes place the next day.

Mr. Obama will be using two bible during his swearing in, the first President Abraham Lincoln’s personal bible as well as Dr. Martin Luther King’s traveling bible.
