In a special follow up...
With the Obamas visiting across the pond, you'd expect talk of the global economy, international relations, and even nuclear disarmament,
But the best thing, and the reason why I LOVE Michelle Obama, is that during a visit to Betty and Phil Windsor's house, she sidled over to Her Majesty the Queen of England and landed a warm and affectionate hug on the old gal.
Evidently this is not something that you do...I mean she is a queen in the most literal sense. We American's though have our own brand of protocol that shifts with each new executive. My guess is we won't see too many pig roasts and pie eatin' contests during this administration. Nor is their much brush to cut in Chicago.
Regardless of that, Europe seems to love Mr. Obama and positively ADORES the Mrs.
From what I can tell, Betty does too. She did after all hug her back. (around 1:15)
(Yeah...me and Michelle, huggers.)
