First Ladies transition too; Laura Bush chats with Michelle Obama
Last night Bush talked with the president-elect and promised full cooperation for a smooth transition. Some key staff people had already gotten security clearances, so the briefings started today.
Also today, the outgoing and incoming First Ladies talked by phone, according to an Obama campaign spokeswoman. The stilted news release said they discussed the "honor and privilege of the role of First Lady," which must have been a fascinating chat.
They agreed to cooperate fully and Bush invited the family to visit the White House sometime soon.
Once again in an American presidential transition, no news is good news.
