NASA Rover at Obama's Inauguration

This will be cool:
According to JSC PAO the rover will be at the very end of the parade. Along the way it will demonstrate its various control features including the ever popular "crab walk". Astronauts from the STS-126 crew as well as other astronauts and NASA personnel will walk alongside the rover.
Obama has been heard to say that he's not too happy about the direction NASA is going and I'm not sure this stunt by NASA will inspire him...but then again, that's what NASA has become best at doing - not inspiring.
