President Barack Obama took the official oath for his second term on Sunday at the White House in a small, private ceremony that set a more subdued tone compared to the historic start of his presidency four years ago. Gathered with his family in the Blue Room on the White House's ceremonial main floor, Obama put his hand on a family Bible and recited the 35-word oath that was read out loud by U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts. "I did it", Obama said as he hugged his wife, Michelle, and daughters Sasha and Malia. "Thank you, sweetie", he told Michelle when she congratulated him. "Good job, Dad.

Obama, 51, will be sworn in publicly on Monday outside the West Front of the Capitol … [Read more...] about Obama starts second term in low-key White House ceremony
