2008_11_FDR.jpgSenator Charles Schumer will hold a lottery to determine which New Yorkers will get to attend the inauguration for President-elect Obama on January 20. Schumer's office has 350 tickets to give out of the 240,000 total. But don't get your hopes too high--over 100,000 requests have already come in. New Yorkers can enter the lottery by faxing the senator's office or registering on his website. The deadline is November 30 and the drawing will be held the first week of December. "The inauguration of a new president is always an exciting event. But I think we all realize that this year is special," Schumer said.
