Since Chief Justice John Roberts totally flubbed his first presidential swearing in he’ll get to do it in private this time, and then role play for the public afterwards. Huh?
Because inauguration day falls on a Sunday in 2013, plans are for Roberts to officially administer the oath of office in a private ceremony that day. The public inauguration on the Capitol Building’s West Front — at which Roberts will administer a second, symbolic oath of office — will take place the next day.
So what if it falls on a Sunday. Let the public see the real thing, even if Roberts screws it up again.
