Three sentences in to his inaugural speech Obama gaffes, saying 44 Americans have now taken the presidential oath
WASHINGTON (AP) -- It didn't take long for Barack Obama to make the first mistake of his presidency.
In the third sentence of his inaugural speech Tuesday, the newly sworn-in president said, "Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath."
While there have been 44 presidential administrations, there have been only 43 presidents; Grover Cleveland served two nonconsecutive terms in the late 1800s.
What's next...57 states?
