The White House has released the president's schedule for Inauguration Day, and it begins with a visit between President Bush, President-elect Obama, and their wives on the North Portico of the White House around 10:00 AM.

Shortly thereafter, the four will share coffee inside the White House, along with Vice President-elect Joe Biden and the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies Leadership.

President and Mrs. Bush will then travel in a motorcade to the United States Capitol, where they will participate in the swearing-in ceremony for Mr. Obama, which begins at 11:30.

At 1:25, the now-former president will speak at a departure ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. He will then fly to Midland, Texas, where he will speak at a welcome home event in the late afternoon. That will be followed by another welcome home event in Waco, Texas, the final event on Mr. Bush's schedule for the day.

Hours later, Mr. Bush will go to sleep as a private citizen for the first time in eight years at his ranch in Crawford.
