Two workers adjust the US flag on the Capitol during preparations for the second inauguration of US President Barack Obama in Washington, DC, yesterday. Obama faces a near impossible task in his second inaugural address on January 21, uniting a nation in which there are deep political divides. Before a crowd of thousands and the eyes of the world on television and online, Obama will stand on the West Front of the US Capitol and swear to faithfully execute the office of president and defend the Constitution.
