One reason Michelle Obama might be so popular at the White House coffee this morning is that she brought gifts.
From ABC’s Sunlen Miller: "Upon arriving at the White House, this morning Michelle Obama presented Mrs. Bush with a gift. It was a pen and journal for her memoirs."
The thing is, we all know what the gift is now, but Mrs. Bush might not! The eagle-eyed Ann Compton reports:
"Laura took the box inside but didnt open it … she could be seen as she handed it to an aide." Gosh I hope she doesn’t re-gift, because that would be embarassing! Our DC crew reports that the gift appeared to come in a bag from the "Tiny Jewel Box," a tony store in Washington.
