ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE (AP) - President-elect Barack Obama has
landed in the Washington area, setting up a final march toward his Jan. 20 inauguration.
Obama landed Sunday evening at Andrews Air Force Base before heading for his temporary home at the Hay-Adams Hotel across from
the White House. His wife and two young daughters made the same
trip from Chicago on Saturday.
Obama landed at the military base aboard a government 757 typically used by vice presidents, first ladies and congressional leaders.
The Air Force base will be his new home airport; presidential plane Air Force One is housed at the Maryland installation.
