"Section 1. The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January, of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall then begin."

Happy January 20th!!!

6. Bill Clinton's second term - 1996
Edited on Sat Jan-20-07 09:36 PM by Xipe Totec
was the last time we had a real President sworn in.

That's twelve years by my reckoning.

If he didn't get re-inaugurated, then the count is sixteen.

9. Ah. I was counting from the end of Clinton's term.
And of course, I meant "IT'll have been eight."
