Obama opening White House to public the day after swearing-in

By Super Admin

Washington, January 17 (ANI): Barack Obama's Presidential Inaugural Committee has revealed that his supporters amongst the public will be allowed in the White House on Wednesday, the day after he is sworn in, on a first-come, first-served basis.

An email sent out by the committee reveals the unusual offer, and tells that all that the people are required to do is to sign up on their Web site.

"If you are among the first to sign up today, you and a friend could be there," the Washington Post quoted the e-mail as saying.

The mail says that Obama and Vice President-elect Biden have committed to running one of the most open and accessible presidential administrations in the country's history.

It also states that an Open House reception for hundreds of special guests will be hosted at the White House on January 21.

The email even reads that the doors of the White House are being opened to the general public because the success of the Obama Government in the next four years would depend on new levels of openness and participation, and bringing change to Washington, D.C. is something everyone should be part of.
