Vice President Mike Pence will attend. Sotomayor has experience swearing in vice presidents — she administered the oath to Biden as vice president in 2013. In addition, the traditional luncheon that follows the inaugural ceremony and the inaugural balls has been canceled. On Tuesday, the night before inauguration, Biden and Harris will pay tribute to those who died in the pandemic with a "national moment of unity." The inaugural committee said they will perform from "iconic locations across the country."

If modern American politics is entertainment as much as civics, then Trump was its star performer. The big question is whether it took a Trump to make 2016 happen in the first place. The fact that Republicans lost when Trump was not on the ballot is evidence in favor of the case. Perhaps the next Trump, if there is one, will be another celebrity. Republican voters have already put a Fox News viewer into the White House.

The S&P 500 rose 8.8% from late 1960 to early 1961 after John F. Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon. The market continued to rally during JFK's first 100 days in office, rising another 8.9%. The current Biden market surge represents the second time in a row that Wall Street has cheered a new president: Stocks gained more than 6% in the election to inauguration period after President Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Biden has big plans to torpedo Trump's policies starting on Inauguration Day. Expect Biden to freeze pending rules, rewrite existing regulations, and trash Trump executive orders. There's an obvious playbook waiting for Joe Biden as he prepares to start tearing down Donald Trump's legacy. Many of Trump's early orders unraveled Obama policies; early Biden orders will similarly undo Trump's work. Biden's administration is drawing upon former Obama administration officials, presidential campaign staff, Biden's former campaign trail rivals, and progressive activists.

President-elect Joe Biden will on Wednesday deliver an inauguration speech centered on unity as the United States faces one of its most chaotic transfers of power in the modern era. His speech will also come in the wake of an outgoing president whose refusal to attend the inauguration ceremony was heralded by his successor as a victory for security. Thousands of National Guard personnel have been mobilized to the District of Columbia in recent weeks to help keep peace before, during and after Biden's inauguration. Biden welcomed the news, saying in a speech that Trump's absence would likely take pressure off the National Guard and law enforcement groups.

President Trump seems determined to be the center of attention in his final few days in office. In the wake of the attack on the US Capitol, Trump has lost many allies and faces an unprecedented second impeachment trial. The logistics of his final hours in office, which have emerged in leaks, seem tailor-made to compete for attention with Biden's inauguration. Trump is boycotting Biden's inauguration, which will be held under unprecedented security following the Capitol riot. Out of office, Trump will have a far smaller megaphone, with his Twitter account still out of his hands and bands on other platforms.

By 1996, roughly a year after the carnage in Oklahoma, Mr. Clinton signed the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act (A.E.D.P.A.) The law was a bipartisan affair expedited by Republican interest in stifling challenges to the death penalty, and inflamed by concern that Mr. McVeigh would evade capital punishment at trial. Habeas corpus entitles detainees convicted in state courts to appeal to federal courts if they believe their rights were violated at trial or during sentencing. During the 1960s, the Supreme Court expanded those rights — one reason Republicans were so eager to limit them in the A.E.D.P.A. It made it harder for appellants to present facts in federal court that had not been presented in state courts — the provision that doomed Mr. Pruett.

It’s all part of a White House ritual that Mr. Trump hasn’t completely disrupted. The Bidens were never invited to meet the residence staff, or canvass the second floor of the White House, which has 16 rooms and six bathrooms and will now be their home. Michelle Obama, by contrast, had been through the White House twice at the invitation of Mrs. Bush before her husband’s 2009 inauguration. Trump should have invited Dr. Biden in for the traditional coffee,” said Capricia Marshall, who served as White House social secretary in the Clinton administration and oversaw that president’s departure in 2001, referring to Melania Trump, the first lady. “Typically, she would come prepared with questions, she’ll meet and talk to the chef, the full time residence staff and have an opportunity for them to break the ice.

The basics of the inauguration are simple: The new president takes a 35-word oath on a date prescribed by the Constitution. As inaugurations evolved over the decades, many became turning points in tradition, marked by mishaps, innovation and spontaneous gestures. Jimmy Carter began an informal custom when he unexpectedly alighted from his limousine and walked down Pennsylvania Avenue. Barack Obama’s first term got off to an unusual start when he became the first president to repeat his oath of office. Harry S. Truman’s second inauguration was the first to be televised, and Bill Clinton’s in 1997 was the first to be livestreamed.

Sixty-one percent of all voters — but just 21 percent of Republicans — say Biden did win legitimately. And even for the half of Republicans who say they prioritize the GOP generally over allegiance to Trump, his high approval remains unmoved by recent events. Among Republicans who say their primary loyalty is to Trump over the party, 98 percent approve of his performance. (Those findings, however, contrast with a recent Pew poll showing Trump’s job rating declining among Republicans.) An additional 9 percent say Trump is "not as good as most."

Mr. Trump has shunned that process more than any recent president, creating an ad hoc system in the White House run by Mr. Kushner and relying on input from an informal network of outside advisers, including Mr. Tolman. That system favors pardon seekers who have connections to Mr. Trump or his team, or who pay someone who does, said pardon lawyers who have worked for years through the Justice Department system. Any explicit offers of payment to the president in return could be investigated as possible violations of bribery laws; no evidence has emerged that Mr. Trump was offered money in exchange for a pardon. Some who used resources or connections to try to get to Mr. Trump say clemency should be granted to more people, independent of their clout. “The criminal justice system is badly broken, badly flawed,” said the former senator, Tim Hutchinson, a Republican who served in Congress from 1993 to 2003.

NASHVILLE — The long awaited ribbon cutting for the National Museum of African American Music is Monday, Martin Luther King’s Birthday, in the heart of the tourist district here. Hardly the most natural place to build a museum devoted to the music of Black Americans. This is not a small space for a niche audience or a token recognition of the least recognized people in Music City’s musical heritage. It is a 56,000-square-foot tribute to the makers of the first music that was truly American — “one nation under a groove,” as the museum’s tagline puts it in a nod to the George Clinton song. According to the museum’s website, no other museum with this purpose exists in the world.
