The Mall was virtually full by 8AM and the areas around the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial nearing capacity.

District Fire Chief Dennis L. Rubin said, “We’re really at a frenzy” coping with the crowds. He said he estimates roughly 500,000 people are already in place on the Mall, ahead of projections for this time of day.

Ten enormous Jumbo Trons line the length of the Mall, five on each side.

More than 2 million people are expected to attend the inaugural swearing-in of President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden.

By 8AM, the Washington Metro reported handling more than 318,000 passengers — about half the usual total for an entire day.

The Metro trains are packed, yet passengers remained in a party-like atmosphere.

    A new era has begun! May Obama and Biden lead this nation out of these troubled times, end the war, fix the economy and restore our image around the world. Make it so!
