WASHINGTON (AP) - President-elect Barack Obama has arrived on
Capitol Hill for talks with key congressional leaders, kicking his
transition into high gear.

Obama's motorcade arrived at the U.S. Capitol in late morning
and the president-in-waiting went immediately into the building for
a meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

It was the second Obama sighting early Monday. His wife,
Michelle, earlier escorted daughters Sasha and Malia to school.

Obama, in brief remarks to reporters, said he was "thrilled to
be sitting with the speaker." He also said: "The people's
business cannot wait."
