Views from UK on Obama oath


Americans visiting London's Madame Tussauds waxwork museum to see the new model of US President Barack Obama on his inauguration day, have spoken about their feelings.

The wax figure shows a smiling Obama standing with arms crossed in a recreation of the Oval office at the White House.

Steve Deblauw, an American tourist said: "After eight years it's time to be proud of America again. It's been hard for a while. I think you can do that today."
