Have I prattled on lately about how happy and proud I am to have real people living in the White House? The Obama's are absolutely refreshing! Barack will be going on Sixty Minutes and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno next week. He is accessible. He takes questions, hard questions, and answers intelligently but in a way that is understandable to mere mortals.
And Michelle! What can I say about Michelle? Last week she went to Ft. Bragg - the biggest, baddest Army base in the United States. She was accessible, talking to groups on base and organizations out in the community. Ft. Bragg! She has also visited most of the major departments of the U.S. Government. She's a mom, a wife, a political partner, an ad hoc ambassador, and a hottie!
Today Michelle had the White House fountains dyed green, and tonight the O'Bama's are holding a St. Paddy's fete at the White House in honor of our Irish forebears.
It has been so long since I have been proud of the inhabitants of our Nation's House - and it is such a great feeling!
