Obamarama: Today in Future First Family News (Nov. 24, 2008)
Our colleague Lois Romano reports that the Obamas have made their pick for White House social secretary -- Desirée Rogers, a prominent Chicago businesswoman and Harvard MBA, who will be the first African American to hold the job.
Poor Barack! He's about to lose all his privacy and freedom, write our colleagues Eli Saslow and Peter Slevin -- no more private dinners at his favorite restaurant, no more trips to the neighborhood barbershop. Well, just like 43 presidents before him, right? Actually, they note, he's the first president in many years who isn't moving to the White House from the bubble of some other government housing (i.e., a governor's mansion or the Vice President's home), so it is a somewhat sharper culture shock.
So you've heard the Obamas will be in the market for a dog? Neely Tucker looks back at presidential pets past and has some helpful advice. Wanna see some photos? Thought you would. . . And the L.A. Times joins the hand-wringing over whether the media is marginalizing Michelle Obama with all its talk of her mommy skills and sheath dresses and toned arms.
