Yes. Roberts really got it wrong... very grammatically
incorrect. He sliped a "to" in that had no place
being there. Very weird. Maybe it was a freudian slip.

I agree on the poem.  It wasn't very good, but it was so badly read, who could tell.  She needs some voice training.  Everything else was incredible and thrilling.
 
Obama, by the way, did not flub the oath; Roberts did, and Obama waited to let him get it right.  Obama clearly knew what the line should have been, and it is the only oath specifically stated in the Constitution.
Cheers,
Nancy

It was amazing.  I couldn't tear myself away from the TV.  I'm glad that he seems to having a little fun now.  He was so intense earlier like the weight of the world was on him, but I guess it is. I am looking forward to seeing them dance later at the balls.
 
I didn't think that highly of the poem that was read.  Aretha was good.  Itzhak Perlman was excellent.   It's a good thing that he flubbed some lines on the oath.  Otherwise, he would be just too perfect a person.  In any case, to quote Bono and U2:  It's a Beautiful Day.
