It was an exhausting and exciting week for many people; now the real work begins.

Next week, we are going to keep taking a look at the challenges — both political AND cultural —facing the next President and his family. We started with Gen. Wesley Clark (ret.) today and we are going to keep it moving.

For example — the first African-American first lady — what special challenges does she face? We have several newsmakers lined up, names whom you know.

You won't want to miss a day. Trust me.

Have a good weekend.
