Different mood at Obama's second inauguration

Four years ago, more than one million people attended President Barack Obama's first inauguration.
It was a historic event and the mood fit the occasion.
Among those participating were members of "Indy Pride" - an Indianapolis music group comprised of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) musicians.
They were part of the first LGBT group to march in a presidential inaugural parade.
Now, in 2013, they feel the spotlight is less on Mr Obama and more on who is invited to participate.
Others on the National Mall also felt a different mood four years later.
