It is being said, metaphorically, that George Bush turns over the keys to the White House to Barack Obama today. Which got me to wondering… Does anybody know offhand whether the White House door actually has a key? I have this mental image of Bill Clinton slipping out some night to hit McDonald’s, locking the door behind him.
I’m sure there’s always Secret Service agents standing guard at every entrance, but can the front door be locked if necessary?

According to Newsweek magazine, one of Hillary Clinton’s staffers told one of the magazine’s reporters during the primaries that everybody after a certain point everybody was “fed up with the Bill Clinton mishegoss.”
This word has always been a part of my personal vocabulary, but does the quote make any sense to most of Newsweek’s audience? I’ve noticed that New York City-based magazines and (to an even larger extent) Hollywood screenwriters seem convinced that the entire country is familair with Yiddish (which I suppose, if these magazines and screenwriters keep using it, might eventually be the case).
