President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were sworn in today (officially yesterday) by Chief Justice Roberts and Latina Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor in front of a hundred thousand cheering Americans!
It was a glorious ceremony.
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic member of the high court, administered the oath of office to Vice President Biden before Obama was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts.
Richard Blanco, the son of Cuban exiles, was the first Latino inaugural poet. Actress Eva Longoria led a Latino tribute to Obama that featured top Hispanic entertainers Sunday night.
"It all shows the power of Latinos in the country and how they're finally being recognized as movers and shakers," said Mryna Orozco, 22, an inauguration attendee from Kansas City, Mo.
