Obama's press secretary finds door barred

WASHINGTON, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Robert Gibbs, President Obama's press secretary, learned how tough transition in Washington can be Tuesday when he had trouble getting into the inauguration.

Security at the Capitol refused to let Gibbs into the VIP section, the DC Examiner reported. He eventually made his way in through a different door.

Once the ceremony was under way, Gibbs stood just behind two of the world's best-known musicians, Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman, as they played.

Gibbs also told reporters that he hoped to figure out how to log on to his White House computer in time to send them a schedule for the new president on Wednesday, Politico reported.

Obama's White House staff begins work Wednesday. But Gibbs said that their day will start with two hours of briefings.
