Obama-mania at the Canadian Embassy

Washington elite vie for tickets to the Embassy on inauguration day

With its panoramic view of Capital Hill and Pennsylvania Ave., the Canadian Embassy has become the place to be during Tuesday’s historical inaugural parade. But gaining entry to the spot with the world’s best vista won’t be easy—the invitation-only party is limited to 1,000 ticket holders, who include A-listers from both sides of the border. Meanwhile on the ground, the Canadian Tourism Commission is planning a party for everyone else, which will include entertainers and celebrity sportsmen.
