Obamas Meet Bushes at White House

Top aides were not allowed in the meeting between current President George W. Bush and President-Elect Barack Obama, as the two met for the first time at the White House on Monday.

The hour-long meeting, held in the Oval Office, focused on the recent $700 billion economic bailout and other economic issues, ABC News reported.

Although Obama's two-year campaign called for changes from the Bush Administration, both he and Bush called the meeting a success and spoke kindly of one another.

While the two spoke in private, First Lady Laura Bush and First Lady-in-waiting Michelle Obama toured the living quarters of the White House before Obama left to tour schools for the couple's two daughters, the L.A. Times reported.
