Calderon gets sworn in as Mexican President at the Congress building
Just to make everything nice and legal, Felipe Calderon managed to get into the Mexican Congress via a side entrance and took the oath of office. The national anthem was played and former president Vicente Fox stood uneasily looking like a man who had a train to catch. Then the dignitaries left the building and Calderon made a speech at the heavily guarded National Auditorium.
Back at the Congress, the Senators and Deputies carried on with their brawl. The BBC World newsreader couldn't keep the mirth out of his voice as he reported the event.
