Description

WASHINGTON - There's nothing like a good photo op to revive a slumping politician. On a day of ceremony and substance opening the Democratic-controlled Congress, lawmakers flocked from their real swearing-in, which was held in groups in the House and Senate chambers, to a pretend one in front of the cameras. Families in tow, they raised their right hands and rested the other one on the Bible or other religious text, as if making a pledge, and had their pictures taken one-on-one in a mock swearing-in for the folks back home.
