Live Blogging the Inauguration part 4

I could listen to this quartet all day long. Absolutely beautiful. 

I'm watching this with my favorite Obama enthusiast, my 7-year-old son. As the oath of office concluded, he jumped up and down, shouting and waving his American flag. 

Who is directing the NBC cameras? Some weird angles and odd choices for camera shots.

I think Obama stumbled a bit getting through the oath to remind everyone that he is a human being, not the embodiment of the Olympus descended to walk among us mortals.

The giant scaffolding is a bit distracting, too.

It also looks really cold. The close-ups are revealing less wonder at the historic nature of the moment and more "I've lost all feeling in my buns."
