As one first lady ditches NYC for LA, another is planning to get comfortable here—well, maybe. An NYU student spotted the Obamas on a private tour of the university this morning after accidentally entering an elevator with Michelle, Malia, an admissions ambassador, and "several members of the Secret Service."
Dearest Malia: NYU is a wonderful place to attend college, and full of the exact kind of people you currently go to Sidwell Friends with—privileged and politically involved, but with way better taste in fashion (we assume), so you'll feel totally comfortable there. And should you choose NYU, we promise to make you your very own shopping guide to the city—just as long as you promise never, ever to leave us.
