I, Barack Hussein Obama II, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. So help me God.
I could only wish similar things for this country. I hope there will come a leader whose electoral victory shall be widely accepted, someone whom we can say, yes, that's the president we've all voted for. At least we can start from there.
