First Lady, Secretary of Health & Human Services in the neighborhood today

The Obamas really must think Columbia Heights is the best hood in town: the First Lady is, again, in the area, today speaking at CentroNia, a multicultural educational nonprofit and child care at 1420 Columbia Rd NW.

She was joined by Secretary of Health & Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and General James Cartwright, the vice chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They're announcing Let's Move! Child Care, an effort to get kids exercising and eating healthier. CentroNia tweeted some pictures of them.

By my count this is the 7th time the President or First Lady have been in the neighborhood since getting elected. They might as well just rent a condo here. No sign of them at Wonderland yet, however.

Where else would you like to see the Obamas go in the neighborhood?

I have to say, it's a disgrace that DC Bilingual would dare to host Michelle Obama for he Let's Move Campaign, considering the school removed all school-day physical education classes last year for grades K-5 and limited their recess to 15 minutes a day.

The reason Obama's PE class was held with the pre-k students is because they are the only ones who have PE class ever.
