That Rug Really Tied The Room Together

While the chattering cable news folk jabber about the fact that a meeting is taking place today between the current and the next president, one fact stands out -- the advice Obama is likely to get first and foremost from President Bush is "pick your rug carefully".

Bush has told this story hundreds of times, on the stump, to foreign dignitaries, and in media interviews in the White House. He insists the rug says "optimistic person." Former White House communications director Nicolle Wallace noted the president's carpet fixation, telling the Washington Post a while back, 'He loves his rug.'

"I'd bet just about anything that it's the first thing Bush talks about when Obama enters the room."

As for what's taking the priority in Obama's mind - rolling back not just the rug, but the policies of the last 8 years.
