‘Good Job, Dad. You Didn’t Mess Up.’

Photo of Barack Obama swear-in, with him standing amid family with his hand on a Bible

Barack Obama has been sworn in for his second term as president of the United States, with his family looking on:

President Obama recited the oath of office with his hand atop first lady Michelle Obama’s family Bible. Following the brief ceremony, the president received praise from his daughters: “I’m so happy!” Malia Obama told her father, followed by Sasha Obama’s, “Good job, Dad. You didn’t mess up.”

Chief Justice John Roberts did the swearing-in.

Also, the White House has released the official portrait of Barack Obama for the next term, taken by White House super-photog Pete Souza:
