Bush Inauguration: Who Is That Standing Behind the President?

I love looking at photos of famous people mixing with the public. What I like best is not the famous people but the regular folks who are pictured standing in the background. I like them because nobody ever notices them. They are anonymous witnesses to an event that was worth photographing. Each of them has their own tale to tell. They are faces of mystery, waiting to be solved.

There were plenty of mystery people populating the photos of today's second inauguration of George W. Bush as President of the United States. Of course he and Laura look great...they are both naturally photogenic. But so are some of the shadowy figures lurking in the background. These generic and obscure people must be known and loved by someone, somewhere. If you know or can identify any of them please let me know.

Any luck? I didn't think so!
