Below is a statement from President-Elect Barack Obama on the upcoming meeting with President Bush

"Michelle and I look forward to meeting with President Bush and the First Lady on Monday to begin the process of a smooth, effective transition. I thank him for reaching out in the spirit of bipartisanship that will be required to meet the many challenges we face as a nation," said President-Elect Barack Obama.

I BELIEVE YOUR HEADING SHOULD HAVE PRESIDENT BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA, THE SAME WAY YOU HAVE PRESIDENT BUSH AND LAURA. SHOW MORE RESPECT!!!!

I thought to myself when reading Obama's comment above...sure it's easy to say the opposite side of the isle is bipartisan so long as you're the winner of the White House. Let's see how long it will take for the bipartisanship to fly out the window after the dems try and push through one of their pork barrel projects.
We'll just wait and see. Be sure that Obama's feet will be held to the fire.

TO both above commentators i bet your truly upset that he won. Well suck it up baby b/c the white house is now the black house please stop being so negative and see this man for what he is... A GREAT MAN!! BETTER THAN BUSH WILL EVER BE!!

The White House is a white house. Until someone paints it black or any other color, it will be the White House.
It remains to be seen how great Obama will be. The heading of the article was fine. Obama is not the president yet, so it would be incorrect to say otherwise.

NOBODY IS PAINTING ANYTHING, GO PAINT YOUR HOUSE!
THEN WASH YOUR MOUTH OUT WITH SOAP!
THE ELECTION IS OVER!
SUPPORT THE MAN OR DON'T BLOG ANYMORE!

Until President Elect Obama is sworn in, he is not the president, he is the President Elect. No one has ever introduced other President Elects as the President until after they are sworn in. Once they are no longer President they become former President. This is and always has been the rules. Why do you want to change the rules for President Elect Obama? He was born of a white woman and fathered by a black man and more than likely if you were to look at his birth certficiate it would state either colored, negro, nigger or some other terminology than Afro-American.
