Michelle Is Coming to Oxford...

As the state visit by Barack and Michelle to Britain creeps closer, some of the details of their trip are starting to become clear. One thing that was announced yesterday is that Michelle will be visiting Oxford University on May 25th, in company with a group of London school children.

When the First Couple visited Britain in 2009 for the G20 meeting, Michelle made quite an impression in the British media - if anything, she generated more press coverage than her husband. Certainly, there was at the time an almost freakishly obsessive fixation on Michelle's clothes and hair. But what I remember the most from that last visit was a really lovely moment that she shared with a group of Islington schoolgirls. Here's the video of that encounter:
