1. I think he and Michelle may spend a few quiet moments there before they head in.
I love that love has returned to the people's house.

2. Per media... Bush left President Obama a private note in the top drawer
.
.

It's a tradition that dates back to Ronald Reagan, who scribbled a note to his successor, George H.W. Bush.

On a notepad with a turkey graphic, the Reagan-to-Bush note said, "Don't let the turkeys get you down."

Four years after that, Papa Bush left a note for incoming President Bill Clinton. And eight years later, Clinton wrote a note for George W. Bush, in which he included a copy of the note Clinton had received from his father.

In keeping with the tradition, said White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, Bush 43 left a confidential letter in the top drawer of the so-called Resolute Desk -- made from timbers of the British ship HMS Resolute. By the way, some in the design world have urged Barack Obama, a new president for a new generation, to choose a lighter desk without all that heavy history.

In any event, Perino was coy about providing details of the letter, but said "the theme is similar to what he's said since election night about the fabulous new chapter President-elect Obama is about to start, and that he wishes him the very best."
