Oval Office Makeover

When President Obama addresses the nation on Iraq tonight, "he will do so from newly redecorated digs," the New York Times reports.

"The new look, including new and reupholstered furniture, new paint and wallpaper, is more modern, and tends toward neutral hues of browns and taupe, rather than the gold and yellow tones favored by his predecessor, former President George W. Bush."

"The White House is not saying on how much the redesign cost, except to say that it was 'in line with' what Mr. Obama's two most recent predecessors had spent... But given the economic hard times facing the nation, Mr. Obama is bound to face questions about the redo. When he arrived for work at the White House in January of last year, he said he thought the office was fine, and saw no need to redecorate."
