      that there was to be a private ceremony on the 20th, but I hadn't quite realized that they were going to redo it for show on the 21st.  I had sort of wondered what exactly they were going to do on the 21st besides have a bunch of parties with the swearing in already taken care of.

      It's just he essentially had two swearings in last time. I can just picture some bunch of history ignorant folks 100 years from now, who don't know the reasons behind either event, inisisting that all Presidents have always been sworn in twice, and it is essential to ensure that the President is properly authorized.
