U.S.: No do-overs. Well, except for the presidential oath.

  • Can’t take chances, y’know. After a notably profound flub during Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration (on Chief Justice John Roberts’ part, by the way), the president didn’t take any chances, and went through the oath again today. Asked if he was ready, Obama said, “Yes, I am. And we’re going to do it very slowly.” There were no repeats of the flub. In case you were wondering, the flub did not affect Obama’s hold on the office. source
