Normally we're all for getting a jump on things, but this is a bit much. Barack Obama has apparently created the "Office of the Presidential Elect" and is conducting business as though he were already sitting in the Oval Office. Mind you, no governmental organization has ever officially established or recognized an office of the president-elect.
President-elect Obama would be wise to remember he has not yet taken the oath of office and until the time that he does, has no official power to perform any of the duties or responsibilities that fall to the office of the President of the United States. Whether Obama likes it or not, President Bush is still the leader of this nation and Mr. Obama should show him the respect he rightfully deserves.
Not to nitpick, but "President-Elect" is a hyphenated word, yet we noticed the hyphen is conveniently absent from his little podium signage. We're guessing that was no accident.
