Binoculars Case

What kind of binoculars should I buy if I want to see a human being 2 miles away?

Yep, I'm going to the Inauguration and in the off chance that I'm the VERY FARTHEST PERSON from Barack Obama on the National Mall, I'd love to see him take the oath of office with my own eyes. In such a case, what kind of binoculars should I buy (how powerful)?

2 miles away? that's very far away, I doubt there's any binocular with enough resolving power to be able to resolve a person's face from that far. Any optics that is portable need to be 10 power or less otherwise you'll see too much shaking. Now if you can have a tripod with you maybe get one of those marine binoculars, or better yet, spotting scope.

But if you want to get a binocular, get one with high definition lenses. Either the Nikon Monarch or Carson XM HD series will be your best bang for your buck. A Swarovski will be the absolute best, but will cost an arm and a leg. The key to seeing anything from that far, is not magnification, it's optics quality. A good glass will give you brighter, sharper images compared to cheap ones at higher magnification.
