quicklist:10title: …There was a dress rehearsal for the Inauguration?Text: Even presidents need a little time to practice – but maybe more so the many, many other players that go into making an Inauguration go off seamlessly. The music groups, marching bands, color guards, salute batteries and cordons – all made up of military members – all band together to finalize logistics.
The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, the Joint Task Force National Capital Region and the Presidential Inaugural Committee held a dress rehearsal for the 2013 Inaugural Ceremonies with all those service members on Sunday, January 13.
The timing for the rehearsal put festivities about an hour behind the schedule for the 21st.
The District Department of Transportation closed off streets and banned parking to make room for the practice parade.
quicklist:11title: …Obama is having two ceremonies this time?Text: The 20th Amendment to the Constitution changed the last day of a president’s term to Jan. 19. With that, the next leader takes the oath on Jan. 20.
The exception to that rule is when – like this year – the 20th lands on a Sunday. Because this is the case for Obama, he’ll hold a private ceremony on the actual day of the power changeover and swear the oath for the public the next day.
The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies has this to say on the precedent for a second ceremony:
“The first time an Inauguration fell on a Sunday was in 1821 for President Monroe’s second swearing-in. Monroe decided, after consulting the Supreme Court, to hold the public ceremony on Monday since ‘courts and other public institutions were not open on Sunday.’ There was no private swearing in on March 4, the date the previous term expired.
In 1849, the second time Inauguration Day fell on a Sunday, President-Elect Zachary Taylor followed the precedent set by President Monroe and had the oath of office administered Monday, March 5, at the public ceremony.”
