Vice President Joe Biden was sworn in for a second term early this morning in a low-key ceremony at his official residence in Washington. Since inauguration day fell on a Sunday, Biden and President Obama chose to follow tradition and be sworn in privately today. They will reenact their oaths at Monday’s public inaugural ceremony at the Capitol.
Every person has the exact same expression of surprise or shock on their face, except one, President Obama.
He is the only person in this photo who doesn’t have his mouth open and his eyebrows are neither raised or “knitted.”
His eyes only barely give away the fact that something intense is happening at that moment. It speaks volumes of his ability to stay cool and keep his emotions in check. My President always under control even in his intense moments!
