Obama Portraits, Just In Time For Inauguration 2013 (PHOTOS)

It was a close call in November, but around 11pm, Barack Obama was declared the winner of the 2012 election. Today, he'll be sworn in for his second term in office, accompanied by songs from Beyoncé, Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor.

In honor of the occasion, we wanted to present our favorite portraits of the president below. Instead of Businessweek's wizened version, we see a man in top form, if Pete Souza's most recent political portrait is any indication that POTUS is getting his groove back.

Let us know your thoughts on his second term in the comments section below.
