According to Wikipedia , "Current President George W. Bush, the forty-third President, was inaugurated on January 20, 2001 to a first term and on January 20, 2005 to a second. His second term expires at noon on January 20, 2009, after which he will be succeeded by Barack Obama, the president-elect from the 2008 presidential election."
Why should it start right now? Would you do this to any other President if it wasn't Bush or Obama?

This always happens. For the two months between election and Jan. 20 the president elect chooses his staff and is briefed daily on what's going on in the white house. I think it's being watched more closely this time because we're in two wars during this transition. Also, the change in leadership of this country is being watched globally. Many world leaders despise Bush and are very happy Obama was elected. They are watching who he's picking for his staff and they're most likely watching how the transition is going - is Bush being cooperative, etc.
