Obama Chooses Lincoln's Bible for Inauguration

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President-elect Barack Obama will use the same
Bible at his inauguration that Abraham Lincoln used for his
swearing in.

Obama will be the first president since Lincoln to use that
Bible, part of the collection of the Library of Congress.

The head of the presidential inaugural committee, Emmett
Beliveau, said Tuesday that Obama is "deeply
honored" that the Library of Congress made the Lincoln Bible
available to him.
