There’s a lot of comments out there about the things new President Barack Obama is doing in office these days, including jokes about his oath of office mistakes, executive orders that are closing  Guantanamo Bay within a year, statements to senior staff about transparency in the White House, and more.

But, of course, some are almost more fascinated by what the Obama’s are wearing, including the President’s choice to not wear a jacket in the Oval Office today, something always done by the Bush Administration:

(CNN) — It’s the same Oval Office. The same desk. Even the same curtains. But President Obama has already made one major change: Go through eight years of White House photos, and you won’t find one of former President Bush in the Oval Office without his jacket on.

It wasn’t just a personal preference. In the Bush administration, it was a rule: Jackets in the Oval Office — and now, it seems, one of the first Bush-era regulations to get scrapped in the Obama White House.
