    I'm so glad they are friendly with each other. It sure helps attitudes across the land.

    The Obama's looked gorgeous and the Bush's looked pretty spiffy too. I wish both families lots of luck and hope they both have a very happy future. They deserve it.

    It too bad that the hateful Libs cannot be gracious on President Bush's last day in office. He and his administration have done everything to help the Obama administration's transition and Obama's family transition. Some spiteful i d i o t s had to boo Bush and Cheney. What a bunch of children.
