Inauguration events get under way

The public inauguration of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden is happening Monday, but the president and vice president have already taken their official oaths and celebrations have started this weekend.

Obama takes oath on Sunday 1
9 / 10

Obama and Biden will take their oaths again on Monday during the ceremonial swearing in. But since the Constitution mandates the president take the oath before noon on Jan. 20, they stuck with tradition when the 20th falls on a Sunday and took the oath during small, private ceremonies so the large, public events could be held Monday.
