THE VIEW FROM HERE

So there are two things you should know about me, I love Barack Obama and I love The View. Imagine my ecstasy on finding out that Mr. President was on the show this Friday gone! Barbara came back from her health imposed hiatus, there is no way she was missing this; Joy should be given a job on his PR team, she couldn't gush enough; Whoopi was her usual cool cat self, love Whoopi; Sherri tried her best to ask important questions but couldn't conceal her school girl crush (I don't blame her) and Elisabeth seemed a bit flustered as she tried to tackle him on unemployment. It was great, the guy is unflappable. Naturally the ensuing 'should he or shouldn't he have appeared' controversy is raging on BUT I care not! I loved it. If you didn't catch it, you can watch a couple of highlights here and here.

A good excuse to look at some White House interiors over the years...

JFK Jr. peeks out from under his father's desk in what would become one of the most well known Oval Office images of all time.


President Obama enters The Oval Office on his first full day in office last January.


The president running down the East Colonnade with Bo, the family dog.


Jacqueline Kennedy's Dressing Room.


I love the sofa fabric in the Green Room.


JFK and Jackie in the Blue Room.


Nancy Reagan's study where she refurbished existing White House furniture. Only the gold mirror and the18the century day bed were her additions.


The White House theater, I want one, I want one now.


Michelle Obama with Queen Rania of Jordan in the Yellow Oval Room.


Nancy Reagan in, you guessed it, the Red Room.

My favourite election victory image - the Obamas sharing a "private" moment in a freight elevator at one of the Inaugural Balls.

Images from The Sacramento Bee, The White House Museum, Architectural Digest & Flickr's White House's photostream.
