The state watched pomp and ceremony on Beacon Hill Thursday, as Deval Patrick became the first African-American to be twice inaugurated as governor in U.S. history. Patrick's inauguration also marks the first time in Massachusetts history that the oath of office was administered by a woman. In this case, Senate President Therese Murray had the honor.
