That's So Joe: How The Senate Swearing-In Became Must-See TV

Vice President Joe Biden takes a selfie with Sen. Jeanne Shaheen's grandson A.J. Bellabona during Tuesday's ceremonial swearing-in ceremony.

Administering the oath of office to the U.S. Senate sounds like a mundane job. That task falls to the vice president.

But the current occupant of that office, Joe Biden, turns it into an event that's so joyful, and so lacking the partisan rancor that typically dominates American politics, that it's almost hard to believe that you're watching a scene from Washington.

Every two years, a third of the U.S. Senate is elected — and there's a formal oath-taking on the Senate floor. But then, right afterward, each senator takes his or her turn in a ceremonial swearing in.

Speaker Election Reveals Split Among Some House Republicans

If Rep. John Boehner secures re-election as speaker of the House on Tuesday, the task at hand will be governing. Boehner's expanded rank and file now includes members from some of the bluest states in the country.

The modern Republican Party is rooted in the South. But there's little evidence of that when it comes to congressional leadership.

When the new Congress begins its session, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky will lead Senate Republicans. Across the Capitol, though, it's not a Southerner that will wield the gavel.
