SANDRA DAY O’CONNOR: Chief Justice Lacket was very kind to allow and interloper to come in today to administer the oath of office to Governor Hull. And since my heart is always in Arizona, it is my great pleasure to be able to be here today and administer the oath of office to someone I’ve known for many years and have admired greatly. And the oath that you will hear is so short and so simple, but whether we’re swearing in a Supreme Court justice or a governor or a member of the city council, the words are the same. And, Jane, if you will put your hand on the Bible and raise your right hand and repeat the oath after me, we’ll get on with the business at hand.
