A swing set has been installed on the south lawn of the White House, the choice of location presumably to allow the First Dad to peek at the girls while working. So, I'm just imagining one of the many, awkward, work-from-home moments that will invariably occur:

Pres. Obama (on the phone): "As I've said publicly, and will say again, we will extend our hand to any nation, including .....hey...HEY! GET DOWN! Get down right now! (Furiously knocking on window)....What? No, no, I wasn't talking to....DANGER!....(mouthing slowly to Sasha) that's D-A-N-G-E-R-O-U-S! .....I didn't mean to Hello?


Nancy! Can you get Ahmadinejad back on the phone?!"
