Puppy Bo nearly trips Barack, but the president is saved by Michelle
In case you missed last week's "Inside The Obama White House" with NBC's Brian Williams, here's the one segment of the two-hour special that readers of this blog would be interested in: The part where Bo nearly trips the Commander in Chief in front of a small army of cameras. Fortunately for the president, first lady Michelle Obama was there to save the day.
Actually the Portuguese water dog demonstrated how well-trained he is, offering President Obama one paw and then the other in order to shake hands. Then he laid down obediently -- the dog, that is. Not the guy who promised to remove all combat troops from Iraq by August 2010, who pledged to cut back lobbyists' clout in Washington, and who vowed to acknowledge the Armenian genocide ... but we digress.
