Considering the anticipation and preparation for Barack Obama's Inauguration it comes as no surprise that President Bush is ready to jet out of town. The White House has announced that President Bush will go straight to Midland, Texas after leaving Washington on Inauguration Day.
The President and First Lady Laura Bush will leave Andrews Air Force Base and head to Midland (which is Laura's hometown) for a welcome event. They will fly in one of the jets he used as Air Force One during his presidency.
The couple plans to spend their first night away from the White House at their ranch in Crawford.
