It's official: President Obama was sworn in for a second term at a private ceremony this morning.
Obama took the oath administered by Chief Justice John Roberts: "I Barack Hussein Obama do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
The public ceremony will happen at the Capitol on Monday. The private ceremony took place today because presidential terms begin on Jan 20, but traditionally if the 20th falls on a Sunday, the public shindig is deferred until Monday.
After he was sworn in, Obama hugged his daughters. Sasha, 11, said "good job daddy." Obama replied, "I did it," and she responded, "you didn't mess up."
