Swearing in

Bible The Wall Street Journal has an inspiring slide show of Presidential oaths, the Bibles that were used, and the verses to which those Bibles were opened. Imagine what our country would be like if all our Commanders in Chief had actually lived by the words they touched during their inaugural ceremonies. 

The slide show notes that Obama's team hasn't disclosed what verse, if any, his inaugural Bible will be opened to. Any suggestions?
