What's on First Lady Michelle Obama's iPod?
Here's the latest.
It was "take your child to work" day at the White House on Thursday and Mrs. Obama met with children of Obama administration staffers for a 43-minute session. She was accompanied by Bo, the family's Portuguese water dog, who was so playful that at one point Mrs. Obama excused him from the room, promising he would return at the end.
The kids asked a lot of questions, including one about what kind of music the first lady likes.
"Oh, that's a good question. I like all kinds of music," she said. "All right, so this is what's in my iPod, some of the stuff that's in my iPod. I love Stevie Wonder." Other artists she named: the late Michael Jackson and "I've got some Rihanna, I've got some Beyonce -- I love Beyonce. Oh, yeah, I love some Beyonce. I've got some new Usher on my CD. I'm trying to relate the things that are on there that you could connect with. Sting, anyone? Sting? No?"
Compare that list to what Mrs. Obama offered up last October on "The Jay Leno Show": Sting, Stevie Wonder, Sara Bareilles, Robin Thicke and Herbie Hancock.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
