In the 1960s, the nation became accustomed to getting its White House news not just from Washington, but from a ranch in Texas owned by President Lyndon Baines Johnson. The LBJ Ranch was succeeded by President Richard Nixon's seaside residence at San Clemente California. Now, Americans will again have a "Western White House," this time in Crawford County, Texas, between Dallas and Austin: the home of President-elect George W. Bush. NPR's John Burnett paid a visit and gave us this report.
