Here, Gov. Butch Otter waves to the crowd after taking the oath of office for his second term. He and all the state constitutional officers took oaths today administered by the chief justice of the Idaho Supreme Court. One of them, Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, set a record by doing so - he's now the longest-serving Attorney General in the history of Idaho. Wasden is starting his third term.
