abc_ann_mr_120718_wg-300x168.jpgAnn Romney, wife of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, will test her TV hosting chops next week, when she fills in for Good Morning America host Robin Roberts. The ever popular Roberts is on medical leave, after having a bone marrow transplant earlier this month.  Mrs. Romney's GMA hosting gig will pair her with GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos, who is also known for hosting political talk show This Week and serving as Chief of Staff to President Clinton in an earlier life.

As women make up the majority of GMA viewers, the Romney campaign likely hopes that Mrs. Romney will help attract GMA's female viewership to Mitt Romney.  Mitt is no chick magnet, as current polls show that he trails President Obama with women by a wide margin. Mitt's got going to have to chase a lot of skirts to match President Obama's popularity with women. Perhaps Mrs. Romney, who has higher favorable than her husband, will help him catch some.

We look forward to watching Mrs. Romney on GMA, and more eagerly, we look forward to seeing what she will be wearing.  Her hair, makeup and dress (Oscar de la Renta, girl!)  at the RNC convention were flawless. (Think we're shallow?  Then go read The Atlantic or something.)

Being bipartisan and all, GMA has also extended a hosting invitation to First Lady Michelle Obama.  We wait with baited breath to see if the First Lady will accept, and we'll update you as soon as we know whether she too will join us in our living rooms for coffee and burnt blueberry pop pop tarts. 

Toodles.

The Obama family (l-r: Malia, Sasha, President Obama and Mrs. Obama) watch the World Cup.

President Obama watched the Women's World Cup with his family on Sunday.

First Lady Michelle Obama and the First Daughters, Sasha And Malia, paid a visit to children at Children's National Medical Center (known locally as Children's Hospital) the day before Christmas Eve. First Pup Bo Obama came along too.


Mrs. Obama and the girls read Christmas books to the children.  When While Mrs. Obama was reading, Bo spied a suspicious, bearded white guy in a red suit and hat lurking around the Christmas tree behind Sasha and Malia and began to bark. Even Santa can't pass Bo's security check.   Perhap the First Pup should keep watch at state dinners, so gate crashers a la the Salahis don't slip in for a free meal.


After the book reading, Mrs. Obama and her girls answered children's questions about their holiday plans and what they got the president for Christmas.  Watch above. 


 

Puppy crisis over

And puppy makes five.  Bo Obama became the newest member of the Obama family on Tuesday. Of Bo, the president joked, "I've finally got a friend," and had this exchange with a reporter:

Prez Obama: [Bo will] be sleeping inside the White House

Reporter: Is he gonna be in a bed?

Prez Obama: Not in my bed!
