Inauguration, continued

By admin Published: January 20, 2009

CNN's John Roberts calls this a "monumentous" occasion.

FNC shows off a Barack Obama tie for sale on the parade route.

MSNBC is talking about things Obama may have to do to deal with the economy, including going to China.

Colin Powell at CBS talks about foreign policy, including Pakistan. Couric urges him to enjoy the day. Powell replies: "Let's all enjoy this wonderful day but let's also remember we've elected one man and this one man is going to need a lot of help. ... Let's help President Obama be one of the greatest presidents we've ever had."

Church service is done. Cheering crowd outside, very audible on C-SPAN, also chants from what sounds like a protest. (Can't quite make out what's being said.)

Fox Broadcasting estimates that by noon the crowd will stretch 2.2 miles from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial, "shoulder to shoulder."
