I'm glad Obama decided to have Roberts re-do the oath of office, this time in private in the Map Room of the White House. The best part - no Bible was used! Truly impressive - between Obama acknowledging non-believers in his inauguration speech to not using a Bible at his "proper" oath of office, I'm extremely proud that he's my President.

Better yet, it seems, though I'm not certain, that just the 35-word Oath of Office, as stated in Article II, Section 1, Clause 8 of the Constitution, was used, without the four addition words "so help me god" placating religious people. If you're going to do it right, do it right... to both the letter and spirit of the Constitution. Say the words in the proper order, and don't add anything to it... especially unnecessary concessions to imaginary dieties.
