Governor's Mansion Traditions

The Governor's Mansion is undergoing a transition phase of its own. before Governor-Elect Steve Beshear and his wife move in.

One custom is that the first lady leaves a white cake for the next first lady. Also, the outgoing governor usually leaves a letter, and a bottle of wine somewhere in the mansion for his successor.

The traditions are considered "friendly gestrures" -- and are not required.

    Hopefully he won't leave his judgment and morality there for Gov-Elect Beshear. And also no need to leave the pardoning pen, because Beshear will have the good sense to not break the law and get indicted. Hmmmm...what else could Ernie leave for him. Oh yeah, he can leave some poker chips from his poker set so Steve will have something to keep his eye on when writing his casino bill to try to drag this 49th-in-almost-everything state out of the gutter with the 500 mil in tax revenues they'll have to work with.
