before then making their move. now, when it came to coming over here to getting from the white house to getting to the capitol, trump and obama wrote in the mode or kade together, we saw it come down constitution avenue, when the crowd got very excited they new exactly who was in the car, who was coming. also hereof course as is tradition, former presidents were in attendance, former president carter, former president george w. bush, president clinton and their wives and of course hillary clinton here with her husband, former president bill clinton, former president george h.w. bush, missing because he has been very ill and hospitalized. now, from here, they all went back inside and then the obama's got into a chopper. now it is no longer marine one because he's now former president, and instead he boarded marine executive, which was bound for joint base andrews, former first couple now head today california to palm springs to rest and relax after eight years in the white
