Want to head to Washington, D.C., for Pres. Obama’s second inaugural celebration? Better get moving. Hotels rooms in the D.C. area already are being snapped up. A reservations clerk I spoke to earlier today at Embassy Suites in downtown D.C. told me her hotel was completely sold out as are many other properties.

Here we go again.  As you may recall, Obama’s first inauguration in 2009 was the most widely attended inauguration ever.  This time around, there might not be quite the same hoopla but that remains to be seen. The official inauguration day is scheduled for Jan 20.

 But since that falls on a Sunday, Obama’s swearing in will take place in a private ceremony Jan. 20 followed by a public one on Monday.  That means that Obama will be sworn into office on the national holiday in honor of the late, civil rights activist, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

 A limited number of tickets to the public swearing in are available through your local congressional representatives.
