Those present at President Obama’s oath for term #2

Subject: WH pool report 10b — More oath details + FLOTUS dress + quote correction + lunch lid

Correction: Obama appeared to say “Mr. Chief Justice” when he thanked him at the end of the oath. Earlier quote omitted “Mr.”

FLOTUS was in a dark blue dress by Reed Krakoff, WH official says. Malia was wearing a blue dress and Sasha was wearing a purplish-fuschia(?) dress.
Also, after taking the oath the president hugged his wife and his daughters while his family clapped.
At the right side of the room sat Marian Robinson, the First Lady’s mother; the president’s sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, and other family Members, including a super-cute kid who was squirming in Maya’s arms.
