Another first; Obama to webcast inaugural ball





On inauguration night, Barack and Michelle will make their first stop – and dance their first dance – at a ball that will be Webcast to living rooms and community centers around the country as part of the Presidential Inaugural Committee’s plan to make this the most accessible swearing-in in history.

Some of the tickets will go free to District of Columbia residents, and some will be offered to grassroots supporters around the country.

Planners are borrowing from the house-party concept that the Obama campaign used to bring the excitement of the trail into the homes of grassroots supporters.
