President Obama's Inauguration Coincides with MLK Weekend
President Obama's second term began quietly, shortly before noon Sunday - there was very little fan-fare in the blue room of the White House. Monday's public inauguration ceremonies will be much bigger.
This time around, it was flawless -- thanks to notecards for Chief Justice John Roberts.
For President Obama, it was both a solemn constitutional event in the blue room, and just a dad sharing an emotional moment with his girls.
Daughter Sasha said, "good job, dad," followed by "you didn't mess up."
A sigh of relief 75 days after a tough re-election victory over Republican Mitt Romney. Yet it's right back to work for the President, getting regula updates on the terror attack in Algeria - a reminder of the grave threat from Al-Qaeda. It's one of many looming second term challenges hanging over Monday's ceremonial swearing-in.
Aides say his inaugural address will focus on bringing the nation together.
