Smithsonian To Re-Create Obama Field Office
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. America's newly elected president won't be sworn in for a couple of months, but already the Smithsonian is gathering objects for a Barack Obama exhibit. Those precious artifacts? Campaign mailers, election maps, and a La-Z-Boy. They were headed for the trash until curators called. The Smithsonian plans to recreate an Obama field office. And it's collected so much, some of the stuff is being stored in the garage of an Obama volunteer. It's Morning Edition.
