President Bush Welcomes Obama

President Bush today welcomed the President-Elect Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama. Most people were wondering if these two could peacefully talk together, because Sen. Barack Obama basically campaigned against Bush (with his comparison of McCain and Bush). However, whatever was said during this long campaign has seem, at least publicly, to disappear. President Bush has been nothing but respectful and wishing Obama the best wishes and even pledged both to Obama and to America to help him transition into the White House (story – at end in the “update”).

This was an historic meeting of the President and President-Elect, and although we didn’t hear from them (we wasn’t expecting to), we are told all went well. They were expected to talk about the economy, the war and national security. I’m sure other topics where mentioned, but we have no way of knowing.

The First Lady and Michelle Obama walked the White House, allowing the next First Lady to see where she will be living for at least four years. I’m sure they talked about responsibilities, the kids, and several other topics.

This also marks the first time Obama has ever been in the Oval Office, and certainly won’t be the last. A day to remember, folks, and hopefully a beginning of a peaceful, smooth transition to power.
