Re-election Day. Barack Obama Sworn In Today.

1/20/13. Election posters from 2012 election
still hang in the Ward 49 Comitteeman's office on Greenleaf.

             Official swear in was today for Obama. Tomorrow's is just for show. They had an interesting segment on Sunday Morning covering the swearing in of Calvin Coolidge in the tiny town of Plymouth Vermont. This occured in his childhood home after the unexpected death of President Warren G Harding. At the time the only telephone was at the general store, so after the official knocked on his door to tell his father, Calvin had to go down there to confirm. He was sworn in by the notary of Plymouth in his house which is now a museum.
