Chicago Turns Out to Witness Obama's Inaugural
Museum CEO Carol Adams says "today is proof positive that history is still being made." And 15-year-old Alana Green says it's nice that the president is from "the same place that we came from." The teenager says Obama is "a pretty good president." Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was expected to attend the inauguration events in Washington.
The president in his address will be urging lawmakers to find common ground and will preview his second-term goals, including immigration reform, stricter gun-control laws and an end to the war in Afghanistan.
