If they are disruptive, then they should be treated as such. However if they are just holding up signs and not causing trouble, then they should be left alone.
It's important to realize, especially on Inauguration Day, that the peaceful transfer of power is something that this country should be very proud of. And that in a democracy, people can protest against the powers that be as long as they do it legally. I'm sure Sadaam and his boys didn't allow any protesters when he was in power. I would think an inauguration that didn't show Secret Service agents busting heads would be a great example to the Iraqi people as they go to the polls later this month.
