Obama Takes Oath Again

obamadoover.jpgAfter Chief Justice John G. Roberts flubbed the order while delivering the oath of office Tuesday, he and Barack Obama redid the oath last night, reports the Post's Michael Shear. This is how it went down: After a flawless recitation that included no Bible and took 25 seconds, Roberts smiled and said, "Congratulations, again."

Obama said, "Thank you, sir," and then added: "All right. The bad news for the [reporters] is there's 12 more balls."

Did he included the "So help me God" part in this oath? Just wondering.
