Perhaps the most remarkable moment from today’s inauguration was an unscripted one.  After delivering his speech, President Obama was leaving the dais and heading into the Capitol building when he stopped, turned around, and gazed out at the scene of people gathered on the Mall, a wistful smile on his face.

“I want to look out one more time,” the president said to someone standing near him, “because I’m not going to see this again.”

Watch the moment above.
