WMRA will carry special coverage of the Inauguration beginning at 11am. Steve Inskeep and Audie Cornish will host live from the West Front of the U.S. Capitol Building, where the Inaugural ceremony will take place. They will be joined there by White House Correspondents Ari Shapiro and Scott Horsley. This special coverage will include President Obama's Inaugural Address, which is expected to occur at some point after 11:30am.

Former Governor Tim Kaine is running against former Republican Governor George Allen for the U.S. Senate.
Governor Kaine appeared on the campaign trail with President Obama in Charlottesville in late August, during which he said “Virginia will not go back, and the nation will not go back.” Bob asked him what Republican programs or policies he believes would do that.
The Opening Ceremony isn't until July 27th, but our coverage on the preparations is underway, from London, the U.S., and around the world.
