Can you imagine?
The Obama date night- can you imagine how it must be to deal with all this hoopla just to go out to dinner?
A carload of armed gunmen. A parade/motorcade? Frankly, I could not live under a microscope this way.
It does seem they have established a "leave the kids alone" boundary, as they are not hounded by the press.
We see the occasional glance with the dog, or Easter egg public event.... but none of this intense press- making the first kids be under the microscope too. It must be strange enough having to live as the first family, and suddenly have a Secret Service entourage following you wherever you go as a kid, having a ravenous press nipping at your heels would be too much.
