Barack and Michelle Obama will meet with the President and Laura Bush today at the White House to discuss the trasition of power.
FOX News reported:
President-elect Barack Obama sets foot in the Oval Office for the first time Monday when he meets President George W. Bush to discuss the transition of power at a time when the country is mired in a deep economic slump and fighting two wars overseas.
Bush invited Obama for the private sit-down talk, a rite of passage between presidents and successors that extends for decades.
The moment is sure to be steeped in history, as the country’s first black president prepares to take office on Jan. 20 with Democrats firmly in control of the White House and both houses of Congress.
Bush and Obama are expected to review the nation’s enormous economic downturn and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“I’m going to go in there with a spirit of bipartisanship, and a sense that both the president and various leaders of Congress all recognize the severity of the situation right now and want to get stuff done,” Obama said last week when asked about his meeting with Bush.
After bashing President Bush for 2 years nonstop on the campaign trail it will be interesting to see Obama reacts to the current Commander in Chief today.
