President Obama took his official oath of office today in a small, private ceremony at the White House.

The constitution mandates that the official swearing-in take place on January 20th, and the president will hold a large, public ceremony tomorrow. The event was open to a limited media presence and the guests were only his immediate family, First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha. Chief Justice John Roberts presided.
After reciting the oath, Obama was first congratulated by the Chief Justice. “Congratulations, Mr. President,” he said.
“Thank you, Mr. Chief Justice, thank you so much,” Obama responded.
