New governor waves to crowd after receiving the oath of office from Chief Justice Barbara Madsen.

OLYMPIA -- Jay Inslee became Washington's 23rd governor this morning, taking the oath of office in the Capitol Rotunda as hundreds looked on from the marble steps and balconies.

Other statewide elected officials will be sworn in in the House chambers before noon, when Inslee is scheduled to give his inaugural address.

Before all that happens, there will be a repeat of yestereday's legislative calisthenics, with people rising, applauding and sitting down as members of the state Supreme Court, state officials and other dignitaries enter the chamber or get mentioned sitting in the gallery.
