Obama and Biden, Take Two

Beyonce will sing the National Anthem, cast members of "Glee" will perform, 147 horses will trot and tens of thousands of people will attend balls at $50 to $1,950 a ticket. In sheer numbers, this year's inaugural festivities will fall short of 2009's epic event, which drew 1.8 million people to the nation's capital, but President Barack Obama's second inauguration will still be a huge spectacle. Planning for an expected crowd of 600,000 and all of the events that surround the swearing-in ceremony is a massive undertaking. Click through for a glimpse at the numbers.
