Vice President Joe Biden took the first official step of the inaugural weekend, swearing the oath of office as he stood among friends, family and a circle of Democratic power players of his political history – and, perhaps, future.

In a brief morning ceremony at the Naval Observatory, the vice president's official residence, Biden put a hand on his family Bible, held by his wife, and swore for the second time to uphold the duties of the vice president's office.
