WASHINGTON (CNN) – President-elect Barack Obama and his transition team will be wasting no time getting to work Tuesday, according to two sources close to the Obama transition team.
Twenty senior staff on Obama’s team have already had their paperwork cleared to enter the White House Tuesday, as soon as Obama is sworn in as the country’s 44th president. Vans will take them from the Capitol to the White House as soon as the swearing in is completed.
Some senior staff will stay behind to attend the traditional lunch with the new president, but even those staffers will get to work quickly. They’ll be arriving at the White House even as the inaugural parade snakes through Washington.
