WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, have reached the reviewing stand in front of the White House to view the rest of the inaugural parade.
The Obamas first spent some time inside the White House, after a parade during which they twice left their car to walk the route, hand in hand, and wave to the crowd.
They then emerged from their new home - the new president holding the hand of his younger daughter, Sasha, and the new first lady walking with daughter Malia. The family was met with hugs from many of the VIPs gathered inside the reviewing stand.
Behind them came the first of the dozens of marching bands and other groups from around the country taking part in the parade.
