In the 4 years since the last inauguration, news organizations have embraced live-blogging to offer running commentary on big events. Some of the most interesting inaugural liveblogs:
- Politico Live, the Washington news source's live feed, is covering the politics and the spectacle of the day. It reports that Rep. James Clyburn sees today as a civil-rights victory, and that rapper Common just got a warm welcome.
- Oliver Burkeman, Washington correspondent for the Guardian, is blogging with a good deal of snark; he wonders if there'll be cheering when Bush departs via helicopter.
- The New York Times' Caucus blog is somewhat more serious, though not averse to a jibe. Reporter Katharine Seelye notes that Hillary Clinton might not get confirmed today—"Hey, Caroline Kennedy! Here's some news you can use."
- And District obsessives shouldn't miss the Washington Post's blog by traffic maven Dr. Gridlock, who advises: Don't leave your car on Route 50, or you will be towed.
