‘I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear…’

Our 44th President takes the oath of office. There was a trivial, momentary slip when Chief Justice John Roberts asked Obama to recite the first line of the oath in the incorrect order. Roberts said “execute the office of President of the United States faithfully,” rather than “faithfully execute.” The oath reads: “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.” Obama paused and allowed Roberts to correct himself.

I just assumed Obama had forgotten the rest of the phrase and was pausing, as if to say, “Line?” Watching again, this explanation does make more sense, and makes Obama even cooler.
