Election Connection

The Big Day

Here are some easy ways to follow the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the U.S. online.

Online NewsHour's live video stream of the event will be co-hosted with NPR starting at 11am. There's also an interactive map.

Watch all the past inauguration speeches, from George Washington to George W. Bush.

Follow live reports from the event and share your own on Twitter with the tag "#inaug09. or check out the Current TV mashup. I'll be keeping track from http://www.twitter.com/laura_pbs.

Share your photos from Washington in the Flickr photo pool and check out scenes from around the city and the world documenting today's historic events.
