Obama inauguration will be most expensive ever

Chicago (PTI): U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration on January 20 is expected to cost a whopping $150 million, making it the most expensive in the American history.

Obama's inauguration expenses are likely to be to the tune of over $150 million, overshadowing the $42.3 million spent on George Bush's inauguration in 2005 and $33 million on Bill Clinton's in 1993, media report said.

Part of the spending includes emergency funding announced by the White House on Wednesday to help with the soaring costs.
The President-elect will take less than a minute to recite the oath of office.
