Michelle Obama surprises White House visitors

To celebrate their first year in the White House, Michelle Obama -- accompanied by first dog Bo -- surprised tourists visiting the mansion Wednesday morning. The first lady stood in the Blue Room, greeting the clearly delighted guests for about 45 minutes; reactions ranged from heartfelt compliments ("Tell Mister Obama 'thank you' for being the Jackie Robinson of the presidency") to inquiries about Bo ("Does he have a tongue?" asked one little boy). The White House also announced plans to expand the public tours -- groups will now be allowed into the Library and China and Vermeil rooms on the ground floor, as well as sometimes even watch the president depart or arrive on Marine One from the South Lawn.
