They will reenact their oaths at Monday’s public inaugural ceremony at the Capitol.

Every person has the exact same expression of surprise or shock on their face, except one, President Obama.

He is the only person in this photo who doesn’t have his mouth open and his eyebrows are neither raised or “knitted.”

His eyes only barely give away the fact that something intense is happening at that moment. It speaks volumes of his ability to stay cool and keep his emotions in check. My President always under control even in his intense moments!

As co-founder of PolicyMic, Jake is managing the writing and editing process and trying to spark thoughtful debate on important political issues.


Inauguration weekend in Washington, D.C. just got a bit more fun. The popular social networking site Foursquare has announced a partnership with the Presidential Inauguration Committee to release a badge to reward volunteerism in conjunction with the National Day of Service on Saturday.


Foursquare’s limited edition Inaugural Service badge will recognize Americans for serving in their communities on January 19, the Saturday before the ceremonial swearing-in ceremony on Monday. Users will be able to unlock the badge by participating in National Day of Service events, which are taking place in all 50 states, or by taking part in the Service Summit on the National Mall.


The National Day of Service Summit will take place on the National Mall on Saturday, starting at 9:30 AM EST. On Saturday the President, Vice President, and their families will participate in service events in Washington DC. The President has also issued a call for Americans in all 50 states to participate in service projects over the weekend to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


“We are excited to work with Foursquare to find innovative new ways to encourage all Americans to commit to ongoing service,” said inaugural head Steve Kerrigan. “Americans across the country are rolling up their sleeves and getting involved to celebrate this historic Inauguration and honor the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.”


Foursquare’s CEO Dennis Crowley said he is excited to participate in the partnership. “At Foursquare, we were so inspired by the idea of a lifelong commitment that we created the first Foursquare badge to reward volunteerism. Along with the Presidential Inaugural Committee, we encourage all Americans to get out and serve in their own communities to celebrate the inauguration of President Obama and the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”


Here’s a sneak peek of the badge:
