Barack Obama has been sworn in to a second term as president during a private ceremony in the Blue Room at the White House. Vice President Joe Biden took his second-term oath earlier today in a similar ceremony.
The 20th Amendment of the Constitution specifies that the presidents and vice presidents terms begin at noon on January 20. Since that fell on a Sunday this year, there will also be a public ceremony on Monday for Biden and Obama to take the oath a second time. That will be held on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
