    Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, told Bob Schieffer on’s “Washington Unplugged” that she thinks highly of First Lady Michelle Obama’s decisions to move her mother to the White House, create a vegetable garden and develop an “approachable” personal style. “This is fantastic, an unqualified yes, there is nothing to complain about,” Huffington said. “Even if you don’t terribly like that particular outfit,” she said of Mrs. Obama’s fashion sense, “you know it is what she loves and what she looks good in.” As for the first lady’s protocol-breeching personal contact with the Queen in London, Huffington had...

    LONDON – Michelle Obama's meeting with Queen Elizabeth II began with a handshake and ended in a hug. The first lady arrived Wednesday with President Barack Obama. After separate meetings on the eve of the G-20 summit, the couple attended an evening reception for world leaders hosted by the queen. Mrs. Obama clearly made an impression with the 82-year-old monarch — so much that the smiling queen strayed slightly from protocol and briefly wrapped her arm around the first lady in a rare public show of affection. It was the first time Mrs. Obama — who is nearly a foot...

    The US President and his wife appeared very relaxed in the company of the Queen Protocol seems to be dispensed with when the Obamas come to town. Michelle Obama and the Queen slipped their arms around each other towards the end of a reception at Buckingham Palace held in honour of the G20 leaders and their wives. The US President and his wife appeared very relaxed in the company of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh from the start. By the end of the evening, the two women were standing side by side and appeared to be chatting about...
