Obama takes presidential oath again

President Obama has taken the oath of office again at the White House, after one word was spoken out of sequence on Tuesday.

Chief Justice John Roberts, who administered the oath on Tuesday, reprised his role in what White House officials described as "an abundance of caution."

No television camera crews were allowed in, but a scratchy audio recording of the event revealed it was second time lucky for the new President.
