I'd declare jeans, t-shirts, flannel lounge pants, fleece tops as mandatory White House attire. Sure get dressed up when you've got someone coming over, but otherwise, be casual.

Whatever makes him comfortable. His office, his rules.

I did laugh a little at the part about how he has maintained the longstanding tradition of weekly lunches with his vice-president. So that would be exactly one lunch at this point? Does one constitute maintaining a tradition?

It'll be interesting to see how it evolves. Will he still be wandering into other guy's offices a year from now?

But Mr. Obama tends to roam the halls; one day last week, he turned up in the office of his press secretary, Robert Gibbs, who was in the unfortunate position of having his feet up on the desk when the boss walked in.

“Wow, Gibbs,” the press secretary recalls the president saying. “Just got here and you already have your feet up.” Mr. Gibbs scrambled to stand up, surprising Mr. Obama, who is not yet accustomed to having people rise when he enters a room.
LOL! :laugh:

That whole article makes Bush sound extremely uptight and "Presidentish". :D Why not let the WH staff be casual when it's just them? Who cares, what's the big deal?

I really admire Obama for being such a family man. I'm sure its got to be hard to juggle all his responsibilities and I think its awesome that he is taking the extra effort to be with the family in the morning and at dinner.

Warm enough to grow orchids? I wonder how high he cranked the heat up?

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said. "That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added." -- Barack Obama
