Mayor to Bring Daughter to Inauguration

Mayor Nutter plans to bring his wife Lisa and their 13-year-old daughter Olivia to the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama in Washington DC next week.

"Olivia obviously, whether she wanted to or not, has grown up in a political family. She pays a lot of attention to all of this and is very very excited," Nutter said. "Just being a part of this, I think is a wonderful thing for a teenager."

Nutter said Olivia has also pondered what life in the White House will be like for Obama's two young daughters, 7-year old Sasha and 9-year-old Malia.

"She has not offered to give them advice or anything," Nutter said. "She's wondered how all of this will impact these two young ladies, that their father is president of the United States, will be very busy doing his job, you know peace and justice and literally trying to save the world at times, but is still a parent. And kids need their parents."
