President Barack Obama was officially sworn in by Chief Justice Roberts for second term a few moments ago in the White House. The president was sworn in with a bible belonging to the family of his wife, first lady Michelle Obama.
President Obama wanted to make this oath more intimate with his immediate family and few officials so he selected the White House Blue Room, a very small oval shaped room (about 30 X 40 feet). The room has panoramic views of the South Lawn and Washington Monument and was named for the color of the drapes, upholstery and carpet.
After the swearing in Obama embraced his wife and said “thanks sweetie,” then towards his daughters “hey” while hugging Malia and then “I did it,” to Sasha.
The Presidential Inaugural address will begin tomorrow and aims to bring the country together in divided times.
What do you think the biggest challenge will be for President Obama?
