[quote]About 2 million people gathered in Washington on Tuesday 20 January 2009 to see Obama sworn in as the 44th president of the United States. Given the historic nature of that occasion, a drop in numbers is anticipated for the president's re-inauguration on 21 January: Reuters reported that city officials are anticipating 800,000 attendees.

Does this simply mean they limiting the number of people this go around?
