First Multiracial President Sworn in for Second Term
***Congratulations to President Barack Obama, our first
Multiracial president, on his second term in office.***
Sunday’s subdued ceremonies are a function of the calendar and the Constitution, which says presidents automatically begin their new terms at noon on Jan. 20. Because that date fell this year on a Sunday — a day on which inaugural ceremonies historically are not held — organizers scheduled a second, public swearing-in for Monday.
