Michelle Obama to roll out the welcome mat in Pittsburgh


Politics Daily has announced the plans thus far for the spouses of the G-20 Summit in Pittsburgh at the end of September. This will mark Michelle Obama's opening adventure into her role as the first hostess of the United States:

-- She will preside over a private dinner for spouses at Teresa Heinz Kerry's Rosemont Farm. Mrs. Kerry is the wife of Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), but her first husband, who was killed in a plane crash in 1991, was Sen. John Heinz (R-Pa.). Earlier this year, Mrs. Kerry hosted a luncheon at her Washington, D.C., home to welcome to town Mrs. Obama and her mother, Marian Robinson.

Since Rosemont is a real farm, watch for this site to fit into Mrs. Obama's healthy eating and White House garden initiatives.

-- Mrs. Obama, who has already hosted a jazz and a country music event at the White House, will take the spouses to the Creative & Performing Arts School in Pittsburgh to introduce them to students who study dance, music, acting, writing and other creative arts.

-- Mrs. Obama will host a lunch at The Andy Warhol Museum. Warhol was raised in Pittsburgh.
BHE, naturally, is on the edge of her seat, wine glass in hand, and will follow up enthusiastically.
