On the way out, it's Bush the statesman
Outgoing president has pledged an ‘unprecedented effort’ in transition

Great expectations for Obama
Nov. 11: A new USA Today/Gallup Poll shows that roughly two-thirds of Americans believe the country will be better off in four years; a number that far exceeds the level of optimism that greeted either President Bush or President Clinton. Obama economic advisor Robert Reich discusses whether the President-elect can live up to these expectations.

WASHINGTON - No matter how people remember President Bush's time in office, let there be no doubt about how he wants to end it: gracefully.

Never mind that Democrat Barack Obama spent all that time deriding Bush for "failed policies," or mocking him for hiding in an "undisclosed location" because he was too unpopular to show up with his party's own candidate, John McCain. This is transition time. Outgoing presidents support the new guy.

And on that front, Bush is going well beyond the minimum. He has embraced the role of statesman with such gusto that it has been hard to miss

Bush: Obama scoped daughters' bedrooms after visit

WASHINGTON – After a confab about the state of the world, President-elect Obama wanted to scope out his young daughters' future bedrooms in the White House, President Bush said Tuesday, recounting the tour he gave his successor this week.

"One of things President-elect Obama was interested in — after we had our policy discussions — was his little girls. How would they like the White House?" Bush told CNN about Obama's visit to the Executive Mansion on Monday. "It was interesting to watch him go upstairs, and he wanted to see where his little girls were going to sleep."

Bush also said that before he met with the president-elect, he called former President Clinton to recall a similar meeting the two had after Bush was elected.

"I said `Bill, I'm getting ready to meet with the new president and I remember how gracious you were to me,'" Bush said. "'I hope I can be as gracious to President-elect Obama as you were to me.'"

Obama's wife, Michelle, who went on a separate tour Monday with first lady Laura Bush, also wanted to check out the bedrooms that Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, likely will use during the Obama presidency.

"Clearly, this guy is going to bring a great sense of family to the White House," Bush said. "I hope Laura and I did the same thing, but I believe he will and I know his girls are on his mind and he wants to make sure that first and foremost he is a good dad. And I think that's going to be an important part of his presidency."

Bush said that when he leaves office, his daily pace will go from "100 mph to near zero overnight."

"I'm not sure what to expect," Bush said. "I know I'll miss certain things about the presidency. I also know I'm looking forward to getting home, so I've got mixed emotions."

The link didn't "show up" right or work correctly becuase you pasted the link into the "Subject" line and it won't work that way, you need to paste links into the text field where you write the body of your message. The subject area wasn't designed to accept links only the message area.
