Today is the day that President Barack Obama will be sworn in for another four-year term and deliver his all-important second inaugural address. We'll have live updates on all the festivities throughout the day.
As you know, it's both Inauguration Day and the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, adding extra symbolism and weight to the historic occasion. Of course, technically he's already been sworn in, since the Constitution required him to take the oath on January 20, but tradition holds that formal festivities are not held on a Sunday. However, it's really the second inaugural speech, beginning at noon, that everyone will be looking forward to.
The sun is just now coming up in Washington, but people area already lining up on the mall and the media is out in full force, so say tuned for more updates.
