Kay Hagan: Inaugural Tickets Up For Grabs

North Carolina residents may have one last shot to get tickets for the presidential inauguration.

Sen. Kay Hagan said Friday she will hand out any leftover tickets on Monday afternoon in Washington. Hagan has notified the winners of a ticket lottery, and those tickets must be claimed by Monday at 3 p.m. Any remaining tickets will be given out then.

Those who get the tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis must show North Carolina identification to verify their residency.

Fellow North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr already selected ticket recipients on a first-come basis. House lawmakers were also given tickets to distribute.

    If you are a US citizen, then President Obama will be your President. You may not support Him but, just as Clinton, He is our President. If you say the US went after the wrong people based on what happened on 9/11, you are correct. The Teliban claimed responsibility for the cowardly act. It would also mean that we did the same in WWII as only Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. It's a good thing we didn't only fight in the Pacific theater but in the European as well. I think it is time to address the party responsible for the 9/11 attacks. I think President Obama will do just find in that area. I don't think he is as nieve as most of you would have us believe. But I also don't think that they are the only group that pose a threat to the free world, although I hope this is the case.

    TO all hello and here we go;Alpha I am a white and cherokee man and I don't like the implications you made here.This is your opinions.Most of all I would not go see No Bama get sworn in if my life depended on it. He is a socialist and he is a snake. He is gonna let us all down but mostly the blacks! The only reason we have not won a war since WW2 is the great politicians.Not the soldiers Korea and Nam were political play grounds and the anti war morons were to blame as well as the media.In WW2 nor Korea you did not see the bloody fighting on TV every night at dinner time like NAM. Media killed the war and the efforts as well as the Draft dodgers who I dislike as much as I do O Bama. He is not my president and never will be. He is the man who got elected.His and the wonderful Dems are showing us how it is gonna be $167 Million spent on this wonderful party when you have people on the streets and people losing jobs every day and people wanting bailouts?Priorities are not there!

    No, Brad. It is actually a perfectly, well thought out question. However, you did not provide a perfectly, well thought out response. And the person is not hypothetically using God's name in vain. He/She would be saying it to tell God to punish Bin Laden. The term "GD" is not meant to be used in the mentioned example as an expletive. However, thanks for the opportunity to allow me to speak with you on a more spiritual level now that I know you are professed Christian. If Bin Laden were to not only change, but to accept Jesus Christ as his personal savior and repent of all of his sins, what verdict would you then give?

    Oh a lot of you aren't going to like this..but for those of you who don't...kiss my (profane language). First off "N".. you can't speak for any black church...even Obama's church had white members. And if you're black..your statement makes you a sam**. Now the rest of you....Real Americans understand why our nation is called "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA"....What happens when you waste a trillion dollars on an phony war? That seems to be your party's legacy. That's why we are voted against you in droves. To realize how dumb "SOME" white men are you need only to look back in history,every mistake they made they have repeated over and over again,they have taken this country to war with no real plan to win or no plan to end when all else fails,we have not Won a war since ww2 when the surrender was signed by Japan. Sept.11 was the first time a act of war was directed at our country and what did white men do but to go after the Wrong people who committed the act. Lie down and play dead!

    I would be neither. I never use the Lord's name in vain, and even if he changed for the better, deserves to be severly punished for the murders he has orchestrated. And as for the second American, only a liberal would set him free, definantly not me(a wonderful thing if he would change though). Not synonymous to the "good news gospel", synonymous to liberalism, which is ruining our country. But thank you for making the point many of us have been trying to do: there are people who think as the second representation does, they are called liberals and are, once again, ruining our country. Only a fool would do as you suggest the second one would do. Poor example; you can do better than that. And I am pretty sure, after hearing his tapes, he is more than just "thought to be". He is a murderer who deserves a most terrible death.

    I agree with Believer. It absolutly sickens me to see a godless individual running this great state that was a gift from God. The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Psalms 9:17

    Brad, your comment affords me the awesome opportunity to present a psychological question to you all. Let's pose the hypothetical situation that Osama bin Laden was to transform into a warm, loving, and generous person. Remind you, this is the man who is thought to be the mastermind behind several terrorist attacks against the U.S. and other developed nations. Well, he is caught by U.S. officials shortly after Obama's inauguration. Despite bin Laden's ideological transformation, one American citizen says "GD" Bin Laden while another American says God bless Bin Laden. The American citizen who said "GD" Bin Laden did so because of all of the harm Bin Laden has caused in the past and because Bin Laden to this day, although better, is not perfect. The other American felt that because Bin Laden had changed, all charges against him should be dropped-synonymous to the "good news" gospel. Which American citizen would you be. Note: this test is only valid if you are an honest American citizen.

    Blog Refuter, Have you noticed that most comments has nothing to do with the News story at hand. I wold like to also say that I love the cut and past people on here that are to lazy to type. I won't name any names but we know who they are.

    When a man says GD America, and hundreds erupt in approval, that's hate. When a man says our government created aids to reduce a race of people and hundreds erupt in approval, in my book that's hate. When a man says America will get what it deserves, to me that's hate. I can only go by what I hear and see coming from the horse's mouth. And when I mention my religion to someone in conversation and make the mistake of saying something I'm not, without a doubt I would immediately realize the mistake and correct myself without having a news commentator correct it for me. To many of you these things seem trivial and unimportant. To me, and imo, many others, these are very important issues that point in a bad direction and deserve questioning, especially when it concerns the safety of the USA.
