PostSubject: US: Obama to Use Two Bibles at Inauguration: Lincoln's & MLK's   Sat Jan 19, 2013 11:51 pm

The Sun Telegraph:

When President Barack Obama stands in front of an estimated 600,000 to 800,000 people outside of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 21 it will be the 57th presidential inauguration this country has witnessed.

This year however the president will technically partake in two inaugurations. Jan. 20 serves as the seventh time in history that - due to the date of inauguration falling on a Sunday - another swearing-in ceremony will be held that Monday.

According to section one of the 20th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, “the terms of the president and the vice president shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of senators and representatives at noon on the third day of January…. the terms of their successors shall then begin.”

This section of the U.S. Constitution changed the presidential inauguration date from March 4 to Jan. 20 and the section was ratified in 1933. The amendment was enforced in 1937 for President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s second-term inauguration, according to information from the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies.

Due to this amendment the president will initially have a private swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20 by Chief Justice of the United States John G. Roberts Jr., according to an announcement made by the Presidential Inauguration Committee on Jan. 4. Vice President Joe Biden will be sworn in by Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor on the same dates.

But since the 20th of January falls on a Sunday this year President Obama will do as his predecessors have done before him and hold a second inauguration ceremony on the following Monday, Jan. 21, for the public.
...
Another twist to President Obama’s public inauguration on Monday will be the swearing-in by two Bibles, according to various news sources – one being the Huffington Post. Since that Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day it is said that the president will be swearing-in with both Abraham Lincoln’s Bible and Martin Luther King Jr.’s.

President Obama said in an announcement offered by the Presidential Inauguration Committee that he is excited for his public inauguration day, not just for himself and for the vice president but also for the American people.

“I will be honored to again stand on the Inaugural platform and take part in this important American tradition,” said President Obama. “I look forward to having Chief Justice John Roberts administer my oath of office as we gather to celebrate not just a president or vice president, but the strength and determination of the American people.”
