Obamarama: Today in Future First Family News (Dec. 1, 2008)

Is Malia Obama a budding thespian? The 10-year-old took a kids' drama class this fall at Chicago's Lookingglass Theatre (founder: David Schwimmer of "Friends"), where she authored a skit, showed off a dry wit. . . and met some other nice kids who promptly told the local paper all about her. (Welcome to your new life, Malia!) The president-elect and a bunch of Secret Service guys attended the play. Says one of her new pals: "On the last day, we took pictures, and I hugged Malia goodbye. She said, 'I probably won't ever see you again.' I said, 'I know.'"

The Chicago Sun-Times looks at Michelle Obama's undergraduate thesis on race, citing our colleague Liza Mundy's new biography. And the Chicago Tribune explores the future first lady's family tree, with roots on a South Carolina slave plantation. (Our colleague Shailagh Murray covered this topic a couple months ago.)

Gawker questions whether Obama's podium policy discriminates against short women. And the Post's David Segal explores our nation's one growth industry -- Obamorabilia.
