Obama girls stay out of the picture
By Garance Franke-Ruta
Some stories making the rounds this afternoon:
• White House photographer Pete Souza says there's a reason you don't see a lot of pictures of the Obama girls all by themselves -- and it's not because he's not taking any. "When we put out a picture of the girls, one of the parents has to be in it. That's one of our rules," he told Photo District News.
• In continuing fallout from the New York Times report on the White House's testosterone-heavy culture, Terry O'Neill, the president of the National Organization for Women, told ABC News that the fact that Obama hadn't -- until Sunday -- invited women to play in various sports games is "troubling."
"Relationships get built in those more informal settings," O'Neill said, "and the relationships have a huge impact on the influence an individual has. We know what happens when we segregated whether it by race or whether it by gender -- you end up with 1st class citizens and you end up with 2nd class citizens."
• Obama may have vastly surpassed President Bush when it comes to the number of fundraisers held in his first year, but CBS's Mark Knoller reports that there's one place 43 and 44 are neck-and-neck: the number of rounds of golf they've played.
