WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden has been sworn in to a second term.
The 70-year-old Biden took the oath of office from Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotamayor during a private ceremony Sunday at the U.S. Naval Observatory, the vice president's residence.
Biden and President Barack Obama will take the oath of office again on Monday during a public ceremony at the Capitol.
After Biden took the oath, he joined President Barack Obama to lay a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery.
Together Obama and Biden placed the wreath on a stand, then placed their hands on their hearts as a bugler played taps.
