Girl, 4, won tickets to Obama inauguration

NEW YORK, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- A New York man says his 4-year-old daughter won two tickets in a lottery to see U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration.

Craig Cubberly said his daughter, Lou, has already decided to use one of the tickets she won in the inauguration lottery to take her father to the prestigious Jan. 20 event, the New York Daily News said Thursday.

"I'm not taking her, she's taking me," he said.

Cubberly said while the lottery regulations required all entrants to live in New York, the rules said nothing about age qualifications.

"I saw the rules, you had to be a New York resident and had to have an e-mail address, but there was no age restriction," the proud father said.

Now the parent-child pair is preparing for their Washington journey, which Cubberly hopes will make an impression on Lou.

"It might end up being her first real memory, I imagine," he told the Daily News.

"She's very excited."
