    This is an incredible, sweeping panoramic of the Inauguration. :cool:

    Use the zoom tool to get a look at individual faces. The sour look on Bush's face is classic.

    Check it out.

    I think poor Aretha is on one of the seam lines... with an extra chin and an invisible guest.

    When you first load the pic its zoomed out. Use the little "+" sign and move the pic around to get it centered. You can see each person's face in the whole panorama, which is pretty amazing. Bush is sitting to the left of Obama.
