WASHINGTON (SR) - President-elect Barack Obama visited with President Bush in the Oval Office Monday, discussing a wide range of economic and national security issues.
White House Press Secretary Dana Perino described the sessions as "good, constructive, relaxed and friendly," but wouldn't comment further, citing the fact that is was a private meeting.
While the President and President-elect spoke, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama spent time together touring the White House and talking about raising children. Perino said the two were very much at ease, with Mrs. Obama discussing her plans to "get rid of all the old stuff" and "go tribal in the joint," indicating her desire to decorate
the White House with African accents, signifying her family's roots.
Several hours after the visit, reports came out of the White House indicating several items were missing, including an Oval Office paperweight formerly owned by President Grover Cleveland, and a silver soap dish and vase originally owned by Jacqueline Kennedy.
Press Secretary Dana Perino described the missing items as "invaluable," and asked that whoever took them to "please return them immediately, or at least by the end of the next term."
