Obama's Return to Washington
By Philip Rucker
CHICAGO -- President-elect Barack Obama will fly to Washington this afternoon, where he will join his wife, Michelle, and their daughters at the historic Hay-Adams Hotel.
Obama is scheduled to leave his hometown of Chicago later today and arrive at Andrew's Air Force Base in the early evening. The president-elect has a busy week ahead, grappling with the heavy ground war in Gaza and meeting with congressional leaders to hammer out his massive economic stimulus plan.
His batteries recharged after a two-week Hawaiian vacation, Obama spent the last two days in Chicago, where he worked at his downtown transition office, got his hair cut and packed for the move to Washington.
Michelle Obama and their girls, Malia and Sasha, arrived in the capital on Saturday night so they would have time to settle in before the girls begin classes Monday morning at Sidwell Friends School.
