      It's a shame the inauguration ceremony was marred by Roberts' mistake. Also, a bit surprising. He must be embarassed.

      The people never heard what was said under oath in that office, though. The only point to an inauguration ceremony is to show the people what he swears to uphold. I know it sounds weird, but a secret oath meeting was a horrible start for Obama.

      The WH Flickr site didn't go up until April 2009, so they dumped a bunch of earlier photos in on the first upload. This image of Obama with Roberts was circulated by the WH to news media the next day to accompany stories on the "second oath."
