Biden says U.S. democracy has prevailed, urges Americans to heal nation

WASHINGTON, Jan 20 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden, following his oath of office, on Wednesday celebrated his incoming administration not as a celebration of a candidate but a victory for U.S. democracy, saying more work must be done to heal the nation.

"At this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed," Biden said in his inaugural speech. "Today we celebrate the triumph, not of a candidate, but of a cause. The cause of democracy."
