Barack Obama Becomes 44th President of the U.S.

This morning Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th president, and the first African American president, of the United States. A crowd of about 2 million--as reported in the Washington Post--gathered on the Washington Mall to hear Obama take the oath of office and give his inaugural speech. Change has come not only to America but to WhiteHouse.gov. Here you can read President Obama's first proclamation. The White House Blog describes features of the new White House website and promises that later today it will post full text and video of Obama's inaugural address.

Above are links to the primary and most up-to-date online connections to the White House. But if you need additional presidential resources, we list them on our guide to Presidents.
