How long is the Inaugural ceremony?
January 14, 2009 11:11pm CST
I know the ceremony starts at 11:30am (Eastern time), but does anyone know about how long the ceremony will last? I have a class at 1pm and I'd have to leave the house by 12:30 to get to school, so if the ceremony lasts longer than an hour, which I'm thinking it won't, I might watch it at school. Does anyone know?

I would suspect several hours at least, then theirs probably the "pre game show" that many networks will be running in some form. don't know really, this is a pretty big event I guess so I suspect it will run for a while.

Oh I'm sure it's gonna be on all day... but I know the parade starts at 2:30 so the ceremony can't be too long. There has to be some time in betweeen. I just would like to watch the swearing in and the inaugural address... so I'm hoping that those would be done within the first hour? Or are they usually done at the end?
