President Barack Obama had an interesting greeting for his former congressional colleagues as he entered the Capitol for his swearing in.

"I miss this place," he said with a big smile as he greeted leaders of the Senate and House.

Obama served in the Senate for four years as an Illinois Democrat before becoming president in 2009.

What he didn't say: Congress -- and particularly the Republican-controlled House -- made it difficult for him to get his agenda passed in the first term, and is likely to continue doing the same in the second term.
