Obama Takes Presidential Oath, Again

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Chief Justice John Roberts has administered
the presidential oath of office to Barack Obama for a second time
just to be on the safe side.

The unusual step came after Roberts flubbed the oath a bit on Tuesday, causing Obama to repeat the wording differently than as
prescribed in the Constitution.

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
Wednesday night in the Map Room of the White House.
