Well, it's official: we're officially stuck with Barack Obama and Joe Biden for another four years. The two were officially sworn-in Sunday ahead of tomorrow's big Inaugural events because of Martin Luther King Day.
The President was officially sworn in for his second term just before noon Sunday in a small, private ceremony led by Obama-care point man Justice John Roberts. "I did it," Obama told his daughters Sacha and Malia. Joe Biden was sworn in by Justice Sonia Sotomayor swore Vice-President Joe Biden in at a small ceremony early Sunday morning. Sotomayor was the first Latino woman to lead a swearing-in ceremony.
In the lead-up to tomorrow's big Martin Luther King Day to-do, the focus is on looking back to see how the Obamas have changed in the last four years. (FLOTUS' new bangs notwithstanding.) Alternatively, some are also looking forward and reading into the attendee's list for Biden's swearing in to see what they can guess about his 2016 ambitions.
