Welcome to West Hollywood,
President Obama!

As I type this, President Barack Obama is in West Hollywood city limits. He's attending an event at the House of Blues (presumably something more important than a Steel Panther show) and following it up with dinner at Fig & Olive on Melrose Place. Y'know who lives a stone's throw from Melrose Place? ME.

No one freak out - I'm not going to crash the President's fancy dinner, despite the fact that it'll be happening right around the corner. I did however put on my super stealth yellow hoodie and take a walk over to survey the hoopla. As you can see from the above shot, WeHo's finest mean business tonight.

I don't think it really matters what political affiliation you claim - it's pretty nifty when the President of the United States is in the city or town you call home. I know a lot of people have their Obama gripes - and some of them are valid - but I'm still a supporter. And that's about as political as I like to get. Which is why I would like to close with the following adorable image:

Let's get margaritas next time you're in town, Barry O! If you don't count the protest groups, West Hollywood totes loves you!
