Contingents are smaller for second Obama inauguration

When Barack Obama takes the oath of office outside the U.S. Capitol on Monday and looks onto the National Mall, he will see a different landscape than he did in 2009. District of Columbia officials estimate that between 600,000 and 800,000 people -- nearly 1 million fewer than in 2009 --will attend Obama's second swearing-in.
