The news thats fit to put on the wire

The Obamas visits Strasbourg, the Telegraph talks of Barack tackling rush hour traffic in London in his armoured car after being grounded by fog. Compared with the normal persons experiences of traffic chaos I am sure he is quite comfortable and don't feel too sympathetic. However, the Guardian is more forward looking. It is all about the grand face-off - Michelle Obama versus Carla Bruni and who is going to be the most chic first lady. I suppose it beats playing down success and focusing on division! Hopefully, though, the narrative is not going to be on which of the ladies looks best; but I wouldn't bet on it not descending to that level.
