Michelle Obama, Bo surprise White House visitors
Visitors touring the White House got more than they bargained for Thursday when first lady Michelle Obama and the family dog, Bo, dropped in to welcome them on the second anniversary of President Obama's inauguration. Beginning at 10:45 a.m., the first lady shook hands and chatted with guests as they passed through the Blue Room.
The White House said in a news release that more than 1.5 million guests have visited the executive residence since Obama took office after an effort to "increase the number of visitors, but also enhance each visitor's experience at the White House."
UPDATE 11:46 a.m.: The meet-and-greet lasted just less than one hour, ending around 11:40 a.m.
