On Pennsylvania Avenue bleachers are going up for Monday's inaugural parade, as well as scores of porta-potties, jumbo TV screens, camera platforms and tall security fencing.

A smaller crowd is expected than 2009, which some estimates put at 1.8 million. But White House Press Secretary Jay Carney says it will still be sizable.

(Carney) "I would suggest to you that there will be a very good crowd on Monday."

Unlike 2009 when there where ten inaugural balls, this time there will be only two: one for guests of the Obamas, the other to honor members of the military.
