So what was it like after election day this week for the couple who live in the White House? Every morning, they got up, put on their robes, went downstairs, and jumped in the pool for a swim. And we do that year round. And, of course, coffee is very mandatory.

Well, the usual. I go fight with the face and Max Factor and my husband goes off to the office. The office in this case is not the Oval Office.

No, she spends more time there. He drives into San Francisco where he has an office for his business in international finance. Neither is a member of the Democratic Party. Both have lots more money than the President of the United States. And the White House-- this one, anyway-- is about 15 miles south of San Francisco in a suburb called Hillsborough.

I'm Ira Glass. Today on our program, surprising stories of American politics. And she began the tour with a packet of old photos and press clippings that she'd assembled. This is really quite a fascinating home, and it has had several lives.

It started off this. Originally, this just looks like just a regular big old house. It was a Victorian. It was an old Victorian. Here it is in the beginning. The house has been around for over half the life of the United States. And it's the kind of huge structure that reflects every prevailing fashion over time.

It's been redeed in the neoclassical style, the French Normandy style, as a massive Swiss chalet, as a Mediterranean home with a tile roof. And finally, inGeorge Hearst, the oldest son of newspaper Looking for a military woman 41 Mexicali 41 William Randolph Hearst, bought this place and hired Julia Morgan, the architect who deed Hearst's castle-- San Simeon-- to turn this house into a facsimile of the White House. Ann Riley says the best guess anybody has is this.

Julia Morgan's charge was to deliver a house that he could invite the presidents to stay in when they came to the West Coast. So that's the myth. And I say it's a story. And we actually don't know exactly why he decided. There's no documentation or quotes or anything from him saying, "Here is why I'm going to do this. Well, his father, you know, had all these wonderful Hollywood starlets cavorting all over San Simeon. There was all this great stuff going on. And I think George was just trying to rise to the occasion. So what else would be famous besides a movie starlet?

Well, the presidents of the United States might give him a little muscle in the family feud. It just feels so "mmm. And once your dad builds Hearst Castle, what are you going to do? It's not an exact duplicate. Yes, there's an oval office. Yes, there's a rose garden. Yes, the columns in the window bays. But it's more of a kind of tribute to the White House than a copy.

They're shooting for the same effect. There's a strong resemblance. But the copy just doesn't have the gravitas of the original. Now, this is a fun room. Upstairs play room. Painted bright red slashed with silver paint. Ping pong tables, exercise equipment, massage table. Actually, this is a carpet that lights up. It has lights in it. This carpet lights up. I don't know how to turn it on. But do you see all those little pinholes?

The owners of this White House reflect the times just as clearly as the occupants of that other White House back East do. During the last century, they included one of the men who founded banks in California and financed the railroad's expansion through the West. And the owner of the shoe company that made Buster Browns. Init was rumored that John Lennon and Yoko Ono would be moving in.

As for the current owners, they made their money the way people do these days. He comes from the world of international banking, she from Hollywood. She was the wife of a studio vice president and the wife of a plastic surgeon before this marriage. When I meet her, she descends a staircase telling a slightly off-color and actually very funny joke. Before an hour's up, she's told me why Jean Harlow used to put ice on her breasts, why there are nude calendar girl paintings of herself over the beds in the house, and some story that Jane Russell told her the other night at dinner.

I liked her. I think that if we can't enjoy our life-- and I tell my friends, I always have something. I have a big calendar on my desk. And I always have something that I can look forward to, even if I have to make that date. If Looking for a military woman 41 Mexicali 41 have to create something to make that month special, I do it. The house itself is a mix of high-brow and low-brow-- incredibly elegant rooms with beautiful furniture and expensive paintings, and here and there, paintings of doe-eyed girls, picked up at sidewalk art sales.

The little embroidered pillows that say things like, "Murder, yes. Divorce, never" And "Screw the golden years, there's a safari room. But it's a place that his mother-- Virginia Kelley-- would probably just love. It is impossible to imagine an American building a house today as a duplicate of the White House as a way to lure the president over. People just do not view the presidency with the same respect as they did back in George Hearst's day.

Witness Rosemary's response when I ask her this question about her home purchase. Was the fact that it was, in part, a replica of the White House part of what drew you to it? It has 27, square feet, 22 rooms. Coldwell Banker real estate agents recently put together an estimate of what the real White House would sell for if it were ever put on the open market.

The real White House, by the way, has 43, square feet and rooms. It sits on 18 acres of prime downtown real estate.

Of course, according to the FEC, candidates Clinton and Dole each spent far more than that for the privilege of just living in the place for four years.
