Oops on the Oath

A case of nerves got both President Obama and Chief Justice Roberts as they both administered/took their first oath of office. Obama messed up first by stepping on Roberts before he had finished saying the first line for him to repeat. Then, Roberts got some words out of order on the second line so Obama paused as he started to say them, realizing that Roberts had gotten it wrong. Roberts corrected himself and gave Obama the correct line. Obama ignored it and said the line as Roberts originally gave him. The rest went smoothly. If you'd like to see the swearing in just click HERE for video. Brian Williams, who I consider to be a constiutional scholar, assures me over on NBC that it's all legal and Obama is indeed our 44th President.
