Theatrics … they’re not just for Hollywood

People keep forgetting this truth (link):

… the props are merely that. Under the Constitution, there is no such thing as the Office of the President-elect. Technically, Obama will not even become the president-elect until the Electoral College convenes after the second Wednesday in December and elects him based on the results of the Nov. 4 general election, as stated in the Constitution.

That’s right — he’s technically not even president-elect yet, but he’s surrounding himself with the trappings.
