Tales of a Traveling First Family

Monday, July 13, 2009

The Obamas arrived back home this weekend after a two-week trip through Europe and Africa. Michelle Obama with her mom and two kids joined the president in Moscow, and from there went to Italy and Ghana. While the president's schedule was widely publicized, The Takeaway looks at what the rest of the family was up to. Lynn Sweet, who writes the column The Daily Flotus for Politics Daily and is Washington Bureau Chief for the Chicago Sun-Times, talks about what the first family did on the trip.
