Muckraker: Grist on Politics

Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and their families will be taking a short tour of the northeastern seaboard by train as they travel to Washington for the inauguration, according to this note from the Presidential Inaugural Committee this morning:

In the tradition of past Presidents-elect, the daylong trip will include a series of events on the way to Washington, D.C. Saturday morning, President-elect Obama and his family will hold an event in Philadelphia before boarding a train bound for Wilmington, Delaware, where he will be joined by Vice President-elect Biden and his family. Together, the families will travel to Baltimore, Maryland, and hold another event, before finally arriving in Washington, D.C. on Saturday evening.
