a field trip …. home

The Hill: First daughter Sasha Obama went on a field trip Wednesday morning – to her own home. The nine-year-old attended the arrival ceremony at the White House that began Chinese President Hu Jintao’s state visit.

After the formal welcome, President Obama and the Chinese leader greeted those who came to the White House. The president paused when he reached Sasha and introduced her to Hu.

The first daughter stood out in the first row of school students … a Secret Service agent could be seen standing behind her as she waved the Chinese and American flags. Despite living in the White House, Sasha seemed visibly excited to be there, trading flags back and forth with her classmates standing near her…..

Washington Post: ….among the crowds of dignitaries and onlookers waving American and Chinese flags were about 150 students, including Obama’s younger daughter, Sasha, and several of her fourth-grade classmates from Sidwell Friends School. The youngsters are studying China in social studies, White House staffers said, and came to the welcoming ceremony as a field trip, of sorts.

welcome…..but

A few minutes into his welcome speech, President Obama, standing next to Hu, mentioned human rights: “….history shows that societies are more harmonious, nations are more successful and the world is more just when the rights and responsibilities of all nations and all people are upheld, including the universal rights of every human being.”

brrrrrr…..

Icicles form on Capitol Hill in Washington, Jan. 18. Freezing rain overnight left icy conditions, closing schools and delaying the opening of the Federal government by two hours

Against a backdrop of ice covered trees, national flags of China and the U.S. fly along Pennsylvania Avenue outside the White House. Chinese President Hu Jintao on Tuesday flew to the United States for a state visit.
