A change in whitehouse.gov

The countdown is on to the moment the whitehouse.gov site is revamped — and, oh yes, the moment that Barack Obama is sworn in as the 44th President of the United States.

The countdown is on to the moment the whitehouse.gov site is revamped — and, oh yes, the moment that Barack Obama is sworn in as the 44th President of the United States.

Visitors to www.whitehouse.gov will be able to view news and see and hear various addresses from outgoing president George W Bush only until 4am, Wednesday, Australian Eastern Standard Time, when the Obama team takes over. Expectations are high for the new version of the site, with many projecting it will build on the level of interactivity shown in Obama's internet-driven election campaign.

Live coverage of the inauguration from sister site CBSnews.com can be viewed here starting tonight at 11pm AEST.
