There’s a big question floating around: will there be a second inauguration for President Barack Obama since this is his second term? The answer is yes. President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will have a second inauguration.
The presidential inaugural ceremony is typically held on Jan. 20, a constitutionally mandated date and the 20th amendment to the United States Constitution actually says the swearing in should happen on Jan. 20.
However, in light of the fact it falls on a Sunday in 2013, the inauguration will be pushed back to Monday, Jan. 21, 2013, which happens to be Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Day – a federal holiday. In following tradition, a swearing in will take place at a private ceremony on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013.
