The Whistle Stop Tour
Following the same route that Abraham Lincoln rode 150 years ago, President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Dr. Jill Biden made their way to the inauguration on a whistle stop train tour that wove its way from Philadelphia through Delaware and Maryland on its way to Washington.
"To the children who hear the whistle of the train and dream of a better life -- that's who we're fighting for. That's who needs change," President Obama said at one stop along the way. "And those are the stories that we will gather with us to Washington."
