Ticket pic of the week: Here's one Obama who's shovel-ready
You know, maybe as the photographer you want to stand back a little bit farther.
First Lady Michelle Obama doesn't look too happy this week as she helps build a school playground in Washington.
However, this coming week she is taking her mother and two daughters on a weeklong visit to Africa, with stops and public events in South Africa and Botswana and including a private safari experience.
