The Obamas hit Rome on Friday, although from their stylin’ duds, you would’ve thought they were in Milan.
The main intent of the trip was to visit the Vatican and Pope Benedict XVI. Michelle gave a nod to Italy by donning Italian designer Moschino duds, including a black veil. Respectful? Yes. Our FLOTUS? No. (Where’s the color?)
The gift exchange was less “frivolous” than usual. The pope gave Obama a “Vatican document on bioethics that hardened the church’s opposition to using embryos for stem cell research, cloning and in-vitro fertilization.” Obama gave a much thought over St. John Neumann’s stole and a hand written letter from Sen Edward Kennedy.
