Big Rehearsal of Swearing-In, Parade
Officials are staging a large-scale rehearsal of the upcoming presidential inauguration and parade this morning -- and even practiced the swearing-in at the Capitol with a stand-in for Barack Obama.
The activities began before dawn, with thousands of people gathering to be deployed later in the morning at the Capitol and along the parade route. It was cold and damp when the rehearsal day began, lit by a full moon.
The practice ceremony at the Capitol got under way just before 8 a.m.. Full story here.
