Obama wants to move into Blair House 2 weeks ahead of time to facilitate the transition team. Is his transition team so very monumental that he needs an extra 2 weeks? Majority of his cabinet has been to Washington before so it's not like there is a steep learning curve. Geez. Fortunately, Blair House turned down the request. Can they not find a hotel room in order for a couple of weeks for his family and they can't find an office?

An Obama rejection ...
President-elect Barack Obama just got nixed!
Sneed hears the White House has rejected a recent request by Obama to occupy Blair House, the president-elect's Washington residence, at an earlier date.
• • To wit: Sneed hears Obama wanted to move his family and his transition team to Blair House, which is across from the White House, nearly two weeks before the president-elect historically moves there on Jan. 15 -- five days before the inaugural.
• • The backshot: A source tells Sneed: "There were reportedly two reasons for the request: Obama's children start school in early January -- and the move could be interpreted as a New Year's symbolic gesture showing the president-elect in a presidential capacity across from the White House on Jan. 2, the day after New Year's Day."
• • The buckshot: Blair House, the president's guest house for visiting dignitaries, nixed the request. "It was a polite rejection," the source added. "But I'm told Blair House was appalled."

• • Responses: An Obama spokesman tells Sneed they were told Blair House had guests until Jan. 15. ... Sally McDonough,Laura Bush, a spokesman for first lady tells Sneed: "Respectfully, we are keeping transition conversations quiet. But Jan. 15 is historically the time when incoming presidents occupy Blair House, which is the president's guest house."
