Fox News has started already

According to one of their talking heads, Obama isn't President because of the botched oath (Justice Roberts fault, btw. Why did he go without notes for THIS of all oaths??). THAT didn't take long, did it?

This is interesting because ABC (the network I watched) had a discussion about when does the President become President about 30 minutes before the oath ceremony. What prompted this discussion was the fact that the inauguration was running 45 minutes or so behind schedule. According to the Constitutional scholars quoted by ABC, the President-elect becomes President at noon on January 20th, whether or not the oath has actually been taken by then.

The CNN folks said the same thing...that he was prez before he took the oath.
