FILE - In this Jan. 20, 1989, photo, President George H.W. Bush, left, is congratulated by outgoing President Ronald Reagan after Bush took the oath of office as the 41st president of the United States on Capitol Hill in Washington. The inauguration of the U.S. president is traditionally a highly-scripted celebration, with seating charts, schedules, dress rehearsals, and planning committees that map each moment of the history-making day from start to finish. But sometimes the unexpected happens. Bush was inaugurated on the 200th anniversary of the presidency, and so one of the two Bibles on which he rested his hand during the oath of office was the same Bible that George Washington used in 1789. The other Bible belonged to the Bush family. The day also marked the first friendly transition in 60 years. (AP Photo/Bob Daugherty)
