From the White House:
Tonight at 11:12 pm, president Bush called Sen. Obama. Here are some quotes from the call for your use and reporting:
“Mr. President-elect, congratulations to you. What an awesome night for you, your family and your supporters. Laura and I called to congratulate you and your good bride.”
“I promise to make this a smooth transition. You are about to go on one of the great journeys of life. Congratulations and go enjoy yourself.”
The President extended an invitation for the President-elect and his family to visit the White House soon, at their convenience.
