President Barack Obama began his second term on Monday, Jan. 21, 2013, declaring that "our journey is not complete" and calling for an end to the politics of absolutism and division and an emphasis on compromise and finding common ground.

U.S News & World Report's launched a live blog on the day itself, though analysis and news reports started rolling in well before the president recited the oath (click here for complete coverage).
