    Upon a quick search, it isn't unprecedented for the president's oath of office to be administered by someone other than the Chief Justice.

    Calvin Coolidge had his done by his father, a public official.
    Lyndon Johnson had his administered by Sarah T. Hughes, a federal judge.

    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
