The Presidential Inaugural Committee has begun sending out invitations to groups nationwide to march behind Obama from his swearing in at the Capitol to the White House on Jan. 21. The first wave selected includes the marching band from Miami University of Ohio, the alma matter of GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan where first lady Michelle Obama spoke during the final weekend of the campaign. Also selected was the Virginia Military Institute that is a traditional performer in inaugural parades. (AP Photo/ Evan Vucci)
