FILE - This Jan. 20, 1961 black-and-white file photo showsPresident John F. Kennedy and Mrs. Kennedy walk outside the White House during inauguration ceremonies, just as the parade began. An 8-inch snowfall on the eve of John F. Kennedy's inauguration in 1961 left hundreds of cars marooned and thousands more abandoned. It will be the first up or down fact check of a Barack Obama campaign pledge for his second term:  Promised warmer Inauguration Day weather.  Will he _ or Mother Nature _ deliver?  It's looking like an uncomfortably close call _ the emphasis on the word uncomfortable for people who will be outside on what's predicted to be a downright chilly day. (AP Photo, File)
