Bush Admin Can’t Accommodate Obama’s Housing Needs
Blair House is the official guest residence across from the White House, and it is customary to accommodate a president-elect. The Obamas would like to move in before January 5 so their girls can start school nearby, but the White House said no.

White House officials declined to disclose specifically who is using Blair House during that period, for what purpose or how they could take precedence over the president-elect of the United States when it came to government housing; one White House official would say only that it had been booked for “receptions and gatherings” by members of the departing Bush administration. Those receptions, the official said, “don’t make it suitable for full-time occupancy by the Obamas yet.”
