I am really glad this guy got in. I was afraid that something would go wrong or he'd be assassinated.....

He will make a great president, I am sure. But beware the racist hate groups, he will need alot of security.

I think this was the best possible outcome. I hope that he succeeds and does not come up against too much racial discrimination, unfortunately there will be some that don't approve.

Personally I felt that America needed a younger President who will lead steer away from playing war games and develop different tactics that will enable peace without the loss of life.

Good luck to him...I hope he makes significant changes and that they filter through to the UK. I feel that TB and GB were too 'friendly' with Bush, they followed him like lost sheep into a world of conflict. Conflict will always exist but war is not he answer. World Peace for me!!!!!!!!

Obama takes oath again as precaution

Post  Guest on Thu 22 Jan - 10:04

Thursday, 22 January 2009 08:48
US President Barack Obama has taken the oath of office a second time after a word was out of sequence when he was sworn in on Tuesday.

Chief Justice John Roberts, who first administered the oath to Mr Obama on Tuesday on the steps of the US Capitol, administered it again last night in front of reporters and a few members of the president's staff.

'We believe that the oath of office was administered effectively and that the president was sworn in appropriately yesterday,' Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told a hastily gathered group of journalists, quoting a statement from White House counsel Greg Craig.
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 John Roberts will administer the oath a second time.'

Then Mr Gibbs ushered reporters into the Map Room, where Mr Obama was waiting, smiling, along with the chief justice. Mr Obama visited with journalists and then stood next to Mr Roberts and took the oath again.

During the ceremony on the steps of the Capitol on Tuesday, Mr Roberts accidentally switched the word order when he administered the oath, saying 'I will execute the office of president to the United States faithfully,' instead of, 'I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States'.

Mr Obama, who briefly interrupted the chief justice by starting the oath before Mr Roberts finished reciting the first part, then repeated back the line as Mr Roberts had said it.

Yesterday, Mr Obama joked with reporters about wanting to do it again. 'We decided, you know, that it was so much fun!' he said.

Then Mr Roberts asked him if he was ready to take the oath. 'I am. We're going to do it very slowly,' Mr Obama said.

Mr Obama raised his right hand, Mr Roberts administered the oath in the right order, and Mr Obama repeated it correctly.

'Congratulations again,' the chief justice said after they were finished. 'Thank you sir,' Mr Obama replied as staff members applauded.

Clinton is Secretary of State

The US Senate last night approved the appointment of Senator Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

The 94-2 vote was expected, despite concerns expressed by senators that there was a potential conflict of interest with former president Bill Clinton's international fundraising work.

Ms Clinton was sworn in to her new office within hours of the vote.

The oath of office was administered by Judge Kathleen Oberly, of the Washington, DC, Court of Appeals, a childhood friend of Ms Clinton's.

Kennedy quits NY governor race

In a separate development last night, Caroline Kennedy has withdrawn from consideration to occupy the US Senate seat vacated by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

'I informed (New York) Governor (David) Paterson today that for personal reasons I am withdrawing my name from consideration for the United States Senate,' said an official statement released early today.

A person close to the decision indicated that Ms Kennedy, who is the daughter of assassinated US president John F Kennedy, was withdrawing from consideration over concerns about the health of her uncle, according to the New York Times.

Senator Edward Kennedy collapsed on Tuesday during an inauguration luncheon for US President Barack Obama. He has been suffering from brain cancer.

Ms Kennedy had highlighted her record of charitable work, service on cultural boards and efforts to reform New York's education system as proof of a commitment to public service.

But she had been embarrassed by a report that she had not always voted in key elections and she got off to a rocky start with local media amid criticism over her unpolished public speaking ability.

Rivals for the seat include worthy but little-known lawmakers as well as Andrew Cuomo, himself political royalty as the son of popular former state governor Mario Cuomo.

Whoever is selected by Mr Paterson must contest election for the final two years of Ms Clinton's term in 2010. They could pursue their own six-year tenure in 2012.
