That may be as close as I would get if I tried to attend it live and in person. Here is my press-credentials-DENIED e-mail notice from the inaugural committee:
Thank you for applying for media seating for the 2009 Inaugural Swearing-In Ceremony. Due to unprecedented demand for the limited number of seats, we are unable to accommodate your request for seating on the Capitol grounds.
While tickets are required for seating within the interior perimeter of the Capitol, the Inaugural Ceremony can be viewed without tickets from the National Mall, where video screens and speakers will be placed to convey the sound and images.
