For those who believe that getting a ticket to see The Oprah Winfrey Show is next to impossible, try getting a ticket for President-elect Obama's inauguration! Oprah wants to make it perfectly clear that she cannot get you tickets to the historic event.
To get a ticket, Oprah says you must contact your senator or congressman. "This year, they will be distributing 240,000 tickets, and they are free, but they won't be given out until the week or two before the inauguration," she says. "That ticket is for the swearing in ceremony only—no balls, no parties."
According to reports, more than 1 million people are expected to travel to Washington, D.C., for the January 20, 2009, ceremony.
