Watch: President Obama Addresses America
Watch: Inaugural Sights and Sounds with Katie Couric
Today, America begins another chapter in its national history as Barack Obama takes the oath of office and becomes the 44th President of the United States. We wish we could all be there to watch the presidential inauguration in person, but our live stream and other video coverage is almost as good! Check out all the presidential action right here, all day long.
Photo Gallery: 2009 Presidential InaugurationHere are the photos of the main event! Click through a gallery of images chronicling the January 20, 2009 ceremony during which Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts as the 44th President of the United States of America. Reliving this momentous day through photographs is almost as cool as witnessing the inauguration in person--and it sure is a whole lot warmer at your computer desk than it was at Washington, D.C.'s National Mall!
