Browsing the Inauguration
From wallet-busting apartment rentals to Oprah's ball gown and party planners, here’s Inauguration Watch's first collection of what's being written, reported and otherwise posted on the Web ahead of the inauguration.
Locals are making quick money by renting out their rooms and condos for the inauguration, the DCist reports. A two-bedroom apartment at Pentagon City has a price tag of $6,000 for the 5-day series of events.
Wondering who is in charge of working the galas? The Washingtonian’s Capital Comment blog will profile the busy locals -- and the first pick is party planner Chris Otway, who will organize celebrations at the Marriot Wardman Park Hotel.
Tickets on eBay are going for more than $1,000, according to CNN’s Political Ticker, but sources say the actual tickets haven’t even been handed out yet and warn that people may be buying into a scam.
Obama supporter Oprah Winfrey already knows what she’s wearing to the Inauguration. According to People magazine, she told Power 105.1 listeners on Nov. 4 that she already had a picture of it pinned up next to a picture of Obama.
Finally, if you can't wait until January to see Obama’s swearing-in, you're in luck. Over on YouTube, someone's put together an "early" edition of the ceremony.
