Vice President Joe Biden took the oath of office at 8:21 a.m. ET Sunday, according to a White House pool report. The ceremony took place at the vice president's residence at the Naval Observatory with his family. He was sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Biden makes it official with second term swearing-in
He placed his hand on the massive, 5-inch-thick Biden family Bible, held by his wife Jill, and repeated the oath offered by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, whom Biden personally selected to administer his swearing-in.
"It's an incredible honor to have Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor swear me in,” Biden said is a statement. “I believed strongly that she would make a great Justice, and it was one of the greatest pleasures of my career to be involved in her selection to the Court.
“I’m happy for the chance to be sworn in by a friend – and someone I know will continue to do great things,” he added.
