Tradition gives it to the Chief Justice....and I can tell you that Obama doesn't want to break tradion on this one....
except he might just use the Koran. Now that causes a problem. You can't be a USA citizen and oath to the political system attached to the Koran. Your allegiance to the USA must be in total.
“You can’t be a USA citizen and oath to the political system attached to the Koran.”
Yes, you can. In 2010, some US representative used the Koran and I don’t recall his name but it made the news because I heard/read it and my thought was, “Now they are in our government”. That’s why I remember that.
It is the oath that is legal/required, the Bible is an add on and doesn’t have to be there; it is tradition, not law.
The country is no longer the one we knew growing up.
