The center of the American political system is a small, oval shaped room in the West Wing of the White House. The President's iconic office, which also holds the infamous Resolute Desk, is called the Oval Office. It is here where historic decisions are made, agreements are hammered out, and legislation is discussed. It is here where the President meets important guests and dignitaries, and it is here where America’s leader enjoys rare moments of peace and quiet. The aura of the office has spanned generations, and even Presidents can feel the sense of power with which the room imbues them. Today, the Oval Office is the most famous office in the world.
