President Swears In, Again

AFTER the blunder heard around the world, President Barack Obama has taken the oath of office - again.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the oath to Obama on Wednesday night at the White House - a rare do-over. The surprise moment came in response to Tuesday's much-noticed stumble, when Roberts got the words of the oath a little off, which prompted Obama to do so, too.

Both men put the word "faithfully" in the wrong place of the oath.

Obama and Roberts went through the drill again out of what White House counsel Greg Craig called "an abundance of caution."
