We took a stroll down Pennsylvania Avenue to check out the construction of the presidential reviewing stand Barack Obama will be chilling in to watch his parade on January 20. And it seems to be coming together very fast. We didn't see any major changes in the construction from the stands used in the past, probably because it takes a long time to plan these events and order the steel and glass needed for the structure. As you can see, the steel is up in front of the White House. Also, next door, you can see that the Christmas decorations have been placed on the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Tomorrow, first lady Laura Bush plans to let the press in for a look at the White House Christmas decorations.
