if things had gone differently in november, rep. Paul ryan (r-wis.) might have departed the capitol on monday as the vice president of the united states. Instead, he faced a chorus of boos as he left the building to attend president barack obama's second inauguration ceremony.ryan announced last week that he would be present for obama's public swearing in at the capitol, calling it his "obligation."
ryan served as gop presidential nominee mitt romney's running mate during the 2012 election cycle. Though they came up short in their loss to obama and vice president joe biden, he was reelected to his wisconsin congressional seat in november.
