and criticism for his actions over the last four years, from passing the new healthcare legislation to leading a national conversation about gun control. In his inaugural address, he discussed equality, and spoke at length about how we all have to come together to make positive change. No matter where you stand politically, we're pretty sure you can get behind that!
Barack Obama has officially been sworn in once again as the president of the United States. During his first term, President Obama received a lot of praise
Did you know...
President Obama has been sworn in twice...twice? On Sunday, he took the official oath in private, because the law states that the president must be sworn in on or before Jan. 20. Today was just a public ceremony. But back in 2009, he had to be sworn in again following the big public celebration because Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts fumbled a few words in the oath. Oops!
Today, President Obama placed his hands on two bibles. One was owned by Abraham Lincoln, and the other, by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Tonight, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will attend two big balls to celebrate. But way back when, George Washington dined all by himself after he was sworn in.
For the next four years, though, what would you like to see President Obama focus on? Do you have any advice for him? Tell us in the comments, cuties!
