GovLoop Goes to the White House
No…it’s not Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
But Mr. GovLoop did go to the White House recently. Thanks to one of the very fine GovLoopers who is currently detailed to the White House… I got a pretty cool
The GovLoop button was displayed proudly as I walked around plus we even got a couple buttons of GovLoop in the press release.
I’m not an avid West Wing watcher so some of this may hold true for those watching the show.
But here’s my observations of the White House:
1) It’s the perfect size – The building and every
room is perfect size. Not too big,
not too small. The whole place is
both grand and humble. I love it.
2) The Oval Office is not that big. It looks like a real office where you
can get things done. Personally,
I’ve met CEOs of companies that have had much bigger offices.
3) Apples – There is a bowl of apples in the Oval
Office. Supposedly, Obama offers
you one. Personally, I would hate
to eat an apple in front of him as the juices always seem to fall on my shirt.
4) Everything is close together – The Roosevelt
room, cabinet room, and Oval Offices are all right next to each other. Not even down the hall…literally just a
few feet away.
5) Digital photos – There were beautiful photos all
over the White House. Just epic
photos. One thing I thought was
interesting is that I saw two digital frames with digital photos. I’m not sure I approve.
Anyone else been to the White House lately? Thoughts?
