Looking a bit stiff on top of a bus, the Obamas are touring the streets of Washington D.C. Of course they are wax figures created by Madame Tussauds - but the similarities are striking. It's because the museum has updated the statues to reflect the times in honor of the president's second inauguration. The President Obama figure has more gray hair now, while it updated First Lady Michelle Obama's hair and make-up to reflect her recent style. Back at the museum, a cast of former first couples greeted them -- as well as a crowd of living fans who have started to arrive at the capital for next week's inauguration ceremony.
