Two Oaths for the Price of One

Last week, we asked everybody about to-be-President-now-already-is-President Obama's cabinet. You told us who you wanted in, then you voted, and Emily wins by suggesting that wanted-to-be-President-now-is-not-President John McCain should be the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Congrats Emily, but really, congrats McCain!

This week, formerly-to-be-President-now-already-is-President-but-at-the-time-it-is-unclear-what-word-to-describe Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States. 44th President, yes, but probably 1st formerly-to-be-President-now-already-is-President-but-at-the-time-it-is-unclear-what-word-to-describe. Anyway, because of this momentous occasion, we've decided to play another round of the PSB Original Game, Headliners.

Here's the article summary, you're job will be to come up with a headline:
Barack Obama was named the 44th President of the United States on Tuesday in front of over 1.8 million supporters. At 12:06 PM, Obama began to be sweared in on the steps of the Capitol. Chief Justice John Roberts incorrectly read the oath of office, causing an awkward moment as Obama repeated the mistake. The following day, the two restated the oath in the White House correctly, but this time President Obama did not put his hand on a Bible.

Here's our headline:
Obama Brings Change: Rewords Presidential Oath

What's yours?


  1. Obama Misstates Oath, Biden Declares Himself President

  2. Politicians Can't Memorize, Would Fail Elementary School

  3. Obama bumbles oath; Bush honored by tribute
