 President Barack Obama's private swearing-in will be a brief, sparsely attended ceremony in the Blue Room of the White House.

 White House spokesman Jay Carney says Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will administer the oath of office on Sunday just before noon, the time the Constitution says his second term begins. Obama's family will attend along with a few reporters, and Obama isn't expected to make a speech.

 The Constitution requires the president's term to start on Jan. 20, but because that falls on a Sunday this year, Obama will have two ceremonies: one on Sunday and a larger, public ceremony on Monday, followed by a parade and inaugural balls.

Vice President Joe Biden will be sworn in during a separate ceremony Sunday morning at the Naval Observatory.
