While hundreds of thousands of people were on the National Mall celebrating the impending inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama, the current occupant of the White House was enjoying a low-key evening with current and former staffers.

President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush left the White House on Sunday evening to have dinner with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at her apartment in the Watergate complex. After dinner, the Bushes traveled to Glen Echo Park, Maryland, to attend a party hosted by White House chief of staff Josh Bolten and former chief of staff Andrew Card. The Bushes only stayed for about five minutes before heading back to the White House.
