Vice President Biden sworn in to office for second term

Published: 01.20.13, 15:32 / Israel News

US Vice President Joe Biden took the oath of office for his second term on Sunday at a small ceremony at his official residence, using a bible that has been in his family since 1893. Biden chose Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to swear him in, making her the first Hispanic judge to ever administer the oath.

 

The US Constitution requires the president and vice president to be sworn in on January 20, hence Obama and Biden will repeat their oaths on Monday during a public ceremony at the US Capitol despite being officially sworn in today. (Yitzhak Benhorin, Washington)
