A First In Presidential History

If you thought history was made on inauguration day...it was made again Wednesday night.

If you thought history was made on inauguration day...it was made again Wednesday night.  President Barack Obama took the oath of office for a second time.

The "Do-Over" came after Chief Justice John Roberts flubbed the oath a bit on Tuesday, causing Obama to repeat the wording differently than as prescribed in the Constitution.

Justice Roberts administered the oath again just to be on the safe side.

White House counsel Greg Craig said Obama took the oath from Roberts again out of an "abundance of caution."

The chief justice and the president handled the matter privately in the Map Room on Wednesday night.

The conspiracy theories have got to be flying!
