WASHINGTON (CNN) - Quickly after the moment of Obama's swearing-in, the president's top aides bolted to get to waiting vans and race to the White House. White House counsel Greg Craig and deputy chief of staff Jim Messina left before the inaugural address ended, although White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel stayed through whole speech.
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
John Podesta told CNN he bolted in 1993 during former President Clinton's inaugural speech - and when he got to the White House, the old drapes were still being taken down.
one of your crawl messages said that Obama was third Illinois president – Lincoln-Grant-Obama. What happened to Reagan? He was born in Illinois. So if you are going to say that it needs to be Lincoln, Grant, Reagan and Obama.
America, there. A new beginning.
RUN, RUN as fast as you can
If you don't like it why don't you run!
Yep James, you're either part of the solution, or you're part of the problem.
James is one of the sad, pathetic people who will find themselves on the unimportant fringe ... nothing to offer but hate ...
Guess what, James, the rest of America is moving on toward the future and if you don't want to hop on the train to a better America, you'll be left behind like an old empty gym bag. Your choice.
James, is that not from the Ginger Bread Man Song? Can we take it that you are unhappy and will be leaving us soon?
The culture of corruption..., Chicago style. Where one man's wasteful bridge to nowhere is now a president's job creation gemmick.
