Yeah, this is fluff, but I have a special affinity for MSNBC host Alex Wagner. She's both adorable and beautiful, but more importantly she's smart with an electric personality and is a strong liberal voice. Her fiance, Sam Kass, is not only the First Family's Chef, he's the senior policy advisor on nutrition and the executive director for Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative. Oh, and he was number 3 on The Hill's 50 Most Beautiful People 10th Anniversary list in 2013. He's known the Obamas since before his run for president and is adored by the entire family.

Back home in the tightly knit community of Hyde Park, he ran into Michelle Obama, whom he’d known around the neighborhood since he was in high school. Malia would soon be in his dad’s fifth-grade class at Lab; Barack was off in Washington, preparing for a presidential bid. Michelle was an overtaxed working mom, worrying about the girls’ getting good nutrition and staying healthy. Kass stepped into her kitchen, “went through the cupboards, and started doing his thing—vegetables and home cooking,” says Blue Hill chef Dan Barber, a friend and mentor to Kass. Sasha and Malia quickly fell in love with the big-brother figure.
Both attractive movers and shakers with big, bright careers, Vogue dubbed them 'Politics' It Couple of the Year.'

Richard Wolff from MSNBC introduced the power couple.

It was Wolffe, also an MSNBC commentator, who introduced Kass to Wagner. After spotting Wagner at White House events, Kass pestered his friend to take him to the MSNBC after-party following the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Wolffe says he told Kass that he was aiming way over his head. “ ‘Forget it. Never going to happen,’ I kept telling him.”
And the rest is history. The wedding is Saturday in New York and President Obama and the First Lady will attend the nuptials.

I told you it was fluff. But sometimes a little fluff is fun. Riiight?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
