Obama Takes Oath Again

I don't think this was truly necessary, but it seems after the first Oath of Office was taken, and there were a couple problems, that out of an abundance of caution, Barack Obama has retaken the Oath of Office.

The second oath -- also administered by Roberts -- took place at 7:35 p.m. Wednesday in the White House's Map Room. Roberts asked Obama whether he was ready.

"I am, and we're going to do it very slowly," Obama replied.

The do-over was aimed at dispelling any confusion that might arise from Tuesday's take -- in which "faithfully" was said out of sequence -- and erase any question that Obama is legally the president.
