President Obama Gets A New Rug for the Oval Office
President Obama Gets a New Oval Office Rug - The AP recently published an article that describes the changes President Obama is making to the Oval Office, one of which includes a new rug.

The new rug in the President's oval office in the West wing of the White House, includes quotes along the border from famous Americans and a central medallion displaying the Bald Eagle, the national bird of the United States, and replaces the yellow sunbeam design rug from former President Bush's Oval Office.
