People from around the country are gathering on the Capitol Mall in Washington, D.C. this morning to watch President Barack Obama take the oath of office for a second time.
One of the people who made the trip from the Twin Cities is Charles Hallman. He's a reporter for the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder.
He was also on hand four years ago for Obama's first inaugural. He joins MPR's Cathy Wurzer by phone from Washington.
The Fergus Falls High School marching band, The Otters, perform in the inaugural parade. We hear a little bit of their performance from 2009's inauguration. They plan to play Yankee Doodle Dandy again this year.
