WASHINGTON — Chief Justice John Roberts (pictured from back) will swear in President Barack Obama (pictured) for a second term later this month.
The Presidential Inaugural Committee says Roberts will administer the oath of office at the White House on Jan. 20, as required under the Constitution. Since that’s a Sunday, Roberts will also do the swearing-in at the public inaugural ceremony Jan. 21 at the U.S. Capitol.
Watch Roberts swear in the President back in 2009:
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor (SOHN’-ya soh-toh-my-YOR’) will swear in Vice President Joe Biden.
Obama followed tradition in choosing the chief justice to swear him in. Biden chose Sotomayor, who will be the first Hispanic judge to administer the oath.
