President Barack Obama takes the oath of office from Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, as first lady Michelle Obama holds the family bible next to daughter Malia Obama in the Blue Room of the White House on Jan. 20, 2013.

That’s how many years it’s been since a third consecutive U.S. president was inaugurated for a second time.

President Barack Obama, who was sworn in to a second term Jan. 20 and delivered an inaugural address yesterday at the 57th presidential inauguration, follows a pair of presidents, Bill Clinton (1993-2001) and George W. Bush (2001-2009), who were also inaugurated twice.

The nation has had three consecutive two-term presidents just one other time in history — the presidencies of Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe in the early 19th century, historian Richard Norton Smith noted Jan. 20 on C-Span’s “Washington Journal” program.

Jefferson was president from 1801 to 1809, followed by Madison from 1809 to 1817 and Monroe from 1817 to 1825. Monroe began his second term in 1821, or 192 years before Obama’s second term began.
