    the girls, and Bo would come out and wave.

    After watching the Royal Wedding, and the Beautification of the Pope last night, I've become sensitized to the advantages of having a balcany for such moments.

    If the whole family came and and waved, and then Barack kiss Michelle, his favoribility polls would go up, but at least 10% points, beyond whatever we might otherwise expect.

    Sadly, even the windows are probably 10 inch thick reinforced glass.

      I am sure the Secret Service said succinctly

      White House reporters were saying the Secret Service were scurrying all over the property and making sure no one went over that fence and that the fence was secure.

      It is too risky without a lot of preparation for the First Family to be waving from any balcony.
