President Barack Obama has arrived at the Capitol for the beginning of inauguration ceremonies. Obama is taking part in a public swearing in, giving his second inaugural address, then dining with members of Congress and other VIPs during events at the Capitol. Former US presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter are joining lawmakers and other dignitaries for the inauguration.
Obama was sworn in during a much lower-key event Sunday, in accordance with the Constitution, which sets Jan. 20 as the beginning of a presidential term. (AP)
