Hillary Clinton Welcomes Laura Bush to White House
First Lady Hillary Clinton on Monday welcomed Laura Bush, wife of President-elect George W. Bush, to the White House they will call home for the next four years.
"We're going to go in and have a visit," said senator-elect Clinton, who braved the freezing cold winter weather to greet Bush on the south side of the White House under a giant Christmas wreath.
Asked whether the stately mansion was familiar to her, Bush said "I sort of know it," in part thanks to stays during the presidency of her father-in-law, George Bush, whom President Bill Clinton defeated in the 1992 election.
