Awkward

Incoming presidents usually stay at Blair House in the five days preceding inauguration, according to The Caucus. President-elect Obama and Mrs. Obama asked to arrive a few days early, so that Malia and Sasha could start their new school on time. But Blair House, it appears, is already booked.

It remained unclear who on Bushes [sic] guest list outranked the incoming President.
"It's not a public schedule," said Sally McDonough, spokeswoman for First Lady Laura Bush, in refusing to disclose who was staying at Blair House. "It's not a question of outranking the Obamas. Blair House will be available to them on January 15."

A few hours later The Caucus updated with a clarification from a White House official:

"receptions and gatherings" by members of the outgoing Bush administration..."don't make it it suitable for full-time occupancy by the Obamas yet."

A transition official explained that the Obamas are exploring their options.

Nice. Isn't there another place where they could hold their "receptions and gatherings"? Don't the "Bushes" have a pretty big house already where they can hold their parties?

Then again, did we expect anything else from them? *sigh*
