At his official residence in Washington, Vice President Biden was sworn in this morning to continue as vice president for the next four years.
As many of you may know, today is the day mandated under the Constitution for the president and vice president to be sworn in. Tomorrow’s festivities are just for show.
Administering the oath was Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Biden was sworn in using the Biden family bible, which is five inches thick, has a Celtic cross on the cover and has been in the Biden family since 1893.
