Washington, Dec 30 (ANI): After the historical win of Barack Obama, journalists are lining up to get a spot at the inauguration ceremony next year.

However, it is not going to be an easy job for them, as the journalists are required to qualify the laid down credentials by the authorities to attain a spot at the historic ceremony.

Were going to have to be very stingy this year, Politico.com quoted Mark Abraham, the deputy director of the Senate Press Photographers Gallery, as saying.

Although the Senate Radio-Television Gallery did not respond to requests for information, the Senate Daily Press Gallery said it has had three times the usual number of applications.

The journalists are going ballistic to cover the inauguration ceremony to be held on the 20th of January 2009.

Papers that have never come before are coming in droves, Joe Keenan, director of the Senate Daily Press Gallery said.

Abraham said: Weve never seen anything like it. Its amazing. (ANI)
