Bush - First Week

The first week in the White House was remarkably smooth and dominated by good news for newly installed President Bush. He hosted members of the Congress by the score and watched as nearly all his Cabinet appointees were confirmed or sworn in. He even got a big thumbs up from Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan, who told a Senate committee he thought the time was right for tax cuts. Meanwhile, Bush benefited from contrast as departing President Bill Clinton remained the focus of controversy. NPR's Don Gonyea reports from the White House.
