Presidential History & Trivia Quiz

Keeping in the spirit of the State of the Union address last night, here are some history/trivia questions for you.

1. The President of the United States is usually administered the Oath of Office by the Chief Justice, how many President's have taken the oath from someone other than the Chief Justice, and can you name at least 3 of them?

2. The Oath of Office is usually administered on the East Portico of the Capitol Building. How many Presidents have not only taken their oaths in locations other than the Capitol building and outside of Washington D.C.? and can you name at least 3 of them?

3. The Daily Double. How many Presidents appear on both lists? and can you name 3 of them?

For those who don't want to play please forgo the "who gives a *&^%$%" response.
