The challenges Barack Obama is about to take on are overwhelming, but not, of course, unprecedented.

(CNN) – Searching the paper on the way to Washington, looking for news of the inaugural, the headlines warn of what lies ahead: “Big firms Deepen Job, Wage Cuts.” “Circuit City to Liquidate.” The storm clouds are all around us.

The challenges Barack Obama is about to take on are overwhelming, but not, of course, unprecedented. Abraham Lincoln took office with fears the country itself was on the brink of dissolution. Fears for his safety were so great he had to sneak throughBaltimore on board his train. Maryland, like Virginia, was a slave state.

FDR’s first inaugural was in the midst of the Depression. 1933. Relief would not come for many years more. So, as Barack Obama heads to Washington today, on a train trip that will re-trace some of Lincoln’s own train journey, he shoulders a great burden, but one past presidents have as well. He arrives in Washington this evening with a groundswell of public support. More than Clinton did, more than Reagan.

ABOARD THE OBAMA EXPRESS (CNN) — Rolling into Maryland now with Joe Biden aboard through mostly rural- and lower-income areas. There are clusters of people here and there.

The most striking are the lone people, standing precariously on a hillside just feet from the tracks, waving as the train comes and after it passes: a single woman outside her mobile home waving a giant flag almost bigger than she is; two men standing on top of an 18-wheeler’s trailer, hardly dressed for the weather, hands in pockets as we pass; and the man who came out on his back porch, hundreds of yards away from the track, to wave.

With construction on the presidential reviewing stand continuing and tourists snapping photos, protestors in orange prison jumpsuits unfurled signs to raise their voice on Guantanamo, the Gaza situation and Iraq.

Secret Service surrounds Obama as he makes his way through the crowds.

Secret Service surrounds Obama as he makes his way through the crowds.

WILMINGTON, Delaware (CNN) — Our first minor glitch happens as we detrain in Wilmington. Seems we — the media — broke free without “handlers.” This tends to upset the Obama people.

As Obama talks, a line of Secret Service walks by me really quickly. I, of course, follow. Turns out people whose line of sight to Obama is blocked by other people have climbed into the leafless trees. That’s a secret service no-no.

These bystanders are now back on the ground.

WILMINGTON, Delaware (CNN) – Vice President-elect Joe Biden and his wife Jill arrived first and received a warm reception from a crowd of thousands, some of whom had been waiting for more than eight hours in the cold. He was introduced as “Amtrak’s No. 1 communter.”

Watch: Inside the Obama Express

Biden reminded the crowd that he has made the Amtrak commute to D.C. for decades and how his wife jill will now have to get used to him being at home at 7 a.m. She no longer will see him off to the train station in the morning and have that free time until his typical return at 8 or 10 p.m.

Biden joked that he will now be living in government housing.

The vice president-elect said that it’s not every day that you get to ride the train with the next president of the United States.

Biden introduced Obama and his wife Michelle as the crowed roared. The entrance music sounded like a soundtrack from “Titanic.” Obama came onstage first, waved around to the crowd as many took pictures or had pictures taken of them with Obama and Biden in background.

Then Biden walked over to the steps, extended his hand and helped Michelle onto the stage. Obama reminded the crowd that it was Michelle’s birthday. Some in the crowd started singing “Happy Birthday.”

Obama spent a lot of time praising Biden and his sacrifice to country. He talked about Biden’s tragedy of losing his first wife. And talked about hope for the future.

Watch: ‘We can and we will restore the middle class,’ says Biden
