Obama Skipped Bush's Speech

So much for listening to both sides of the aisle. President-elect Barack Obama didn't tune into President Bush's farewell address to the nation last night. He and his wife Michelle were dining out at the Equinox restaurant in D.C. as Bush wished him luck, noting his inauguration on Tuesday as "a moment of hope and pride." The Obamas left their temporary residence at the Blair House just across from the White House mere minutes before Bush's speech began. A host at Equinox said Obama watched a TV at the bar for "a minute or two" but it's not known what he was watching and Obama's team hasn't responded to inquiries. Maybe he DVR'd it.
