The Bible(s)

Three bibles will be involved in this year's swearing-in. When Obama takes the oath of office at the White House on Jan. 20, the date mandated by the Constitution, he'll use the bible Michelle Obama's father gave to his mother on Mother's Day in 1958. On Jan. 21, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Obama will take the oath publicly with Abraham Lincoln's (pictured) and Martin Luther King Jr.'s bibles.
