Rep. Schultz: 'My way or the highway politics need to be put aside'

Justice Sonia Sotomayor made history yesterday when she swore in Joe Biden to another four years as vice president, becoming the first Latina jurist to administer an inaugural oath.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was present at the ceremony, which she describes as "warm and intimate" on Starting Point this morning, saying that both Sotomayor and Biden appeared thrilled during the occasion.

Rep. Schultz, who is the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, also explains what she expects to hear later today during President Obama's inaugural address.

"I think what the president's goal will be is trying to use the inaugural address to unify the country," Rep. Schultz explains. "We should start this new term trying to put away the divisive fights... We all have to recognize that our challenges are significant and we can all give up a little and it’s okay."
