Call this lottery National Mall, not Powerball

Feeling lucky?
Both New York senators are holding lotteries to give away tickets to President Barack Obama's inauguration on Jan. 21, 2013.

The tickets won't get you into one of the many extravagant balls, but will admit you to a closer seat to the actual ceremony on the western front section of the Capitol Building.

The odds of winning, as in most lotteries, are long.
