On Monday, January 21, 2013, the public inaugural ceremony for Barack Obama will be held for purposes of swearing our 44th President into office for his second term. According to projected attendance estimates, as many as 800,000 people may flock to the nation’s capital to attend the inaugural ceremony which, mirroring that of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, will represent only the second time in U.S. history that a President has been sworn into office four times.

You read that right: four times.
