President-elect Obama and his wife, Michelle, have arrived at the White House for a visit, their first since Obama's landslide election victory.
President Bush and first lady Laura Bush were at the South Portico of the White House to greet the Obamas on a sunny fall day with moderate temperatures and colorful -- but fading -- autumn leaves.
Just a couple moments later, Bush and Obama were seen walking along the White House collonade to the Oval Office.
The Obamas' arrival had the look of a foreign head-of-state state visit -- although there were no fife and drum bands, speeches or official pageantry. The Obamas were driven up to the South Portico, where they were welcomed by the Bushes and escorted into the Executive Mansion that they'll call home in a little more than two months.
