Subject: VP Pool 1/20/13 #2: Guests arriving/scene

Pool is now holding on the staircase off the main foyer inside the VP's residence as guests are starting to take their seats. Seating is arrayed in three rooms: immediately in front of the stage and the two rooms immediately on either side.

A modest blue stage is across from the pool where VPOTUS is to take the oath. To the right is a small table where the impressive Biden family bible is resting.

Two pieces of artwork are on the left and right walls of the alcove. Per VP's office they are: 

Lincoln Delivering His Second Inaugural Address
N.C. WYETH
 
and

So Proudly We Hailed
VICTOR LETONOFF
 
An American flag is behind the stage over a yellowish/cream curtain. It is from the Vice President’s Ceremonial Office in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
 
Per VP's staff, a prayer will be offered by Rev. Kevin O’Brien, S. J.,Vice President for Mission and Ministry at Georgetown University.
