It was the last time that Barack Obama would be sworn in as president of the United States and he wanted to savor the moment.

Never mind that the first business of his second term and lunch were waiting.

After delivering his inaugural address and listening to patriotic musical selections and a poem written just for the occasion, Obama began walking off the inaugural platform to go into the Capitol.

He stopped and turned around to look at the scene on the National Mall, filled with hundreds of thousands of people who braved chilly weather to be part of the ceremony.

"I want to take a look, one more time," he said.

"I'm not going to see this again," he said.
