oops. He did it again

Okay, it was sort of silly that they made Obama retake the oath of office because it was slightly wrong the first time. But, for one small moment, let's assume that he needed to. If that's the case, he still isn't president.

Take One: I do solemnly swear that I will execute the Office of President of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. So help me god.

Take Two: I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. So help me god.

But... the old constitution says: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Take three?

At least the second time he took the oath he didn't use a Bible. That's a step forward isn't it?
