After the flub heard around the world, President Barack Obama has taken the oath of office. Again. Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the oath to Obama on Wednesday night at the White House – a rare do-over.

Here’s a bit of history – two other previous presidents have repeated the oath because of similar issues, Calvin Coolidge and Chester A. Arthur.
