Heading to the Inaugural Ceremony

First Lady Laura Bush and soon to be First Lady Michele Obama are heading to the car as they prepare to drive to the inauguration ceremony.

Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill are preparing to travel to the inauguration platform.

Vice President Dick Cheney is being pushed in his wheelchair to the motorcade. He pulled a muscle packing boxes.

President George W. Bush and President Elect Barack Obama are leaving the White House in the motorcade together at 10:49 am Eastern Time. The motorcade is pulling our at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as I watch live on CNN.com Live with facebook.

Traffic is very light as the only cars on the road are probably the motorcade.

Seating is at about 300,000 maximum so people will be turned away. The space is packed. Signs of "Change" are being held up while others fly flags.
