Travelers' Aid

Inside the Inauguration
December 22, 2000

We've all been on a trip with our political system, lately. Some saw the uncertainty over the Presidential results as a constitutional crisis, others as the latest in a continuing series of political entertainments, starring nearly every branch of the government including Nine Angry Justices divided against themselves, scores of Florida State Representatives circling the wagons against the Federal Courts, two candidates from increasingly indistinguishable parties, and thousands of stranded votes struggling to be understood. However you did the numbers, though, the destination was 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. And though the action has now moved to Washington, DC, the trip is far from over. For one thing, there's the inauguration. Who's in and who's out? If you can get to the White House without winning the popular vote, can you show up for the inauguration without being invited? Here to explore that and other inauguration day travel issues is the Savvy Traveler's Rudy Maxa.

If you'd like us to address your travel questions or concerns, send us an email. Or, you can snail-mail them in. The address is The Savvy Traveler, in care of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California 90007. Or call me at 888-SAV-TRAV.
