Earlier today President Barack Obama and Chief Justice John Roberts had a oath of office redo in the White House’s Map Room. Constitutionally President Obama became POTUS Tuesday at noon, but constitutional scholars also pointed out that the oath of office is also a constitutional requirement… so what happens when the Chief Justice and the Commander in Chief fumble the words? In reality nothing would have come of it, but it seems like they played it on the safe side. And thank the gods for that because could you imagine the right wing banter we would have to endure for 4 years about him not having been sworn in properly?
