First lady Michelle Obama's breezy, winter floral strapless dress Thursday night was everything . Obama joined the hubby in hosting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, at a White House state dinner in honor of Canada. As a nod to our friendly neighboring country to the north, Obama opted for a Jason Wu - the same designer she chose for both inaugural balls. Wu was born in Taiwan, but grew up in Vancouver.

We know first lady Michelle Obama will look divine at this weekend's inaugural celebrations, whether she recycles an oldie or opts for a piece of new couture. But all eyes will be on the teen and tween set to usher in a fresh era of Obama fashion - Malia and Sasha. Oh, the anticipation. Four years ago, the nation oohed and awwed at the sight of the young sisters in darling crewcuts by J. Crew coats. This time we wonder: Will they do cute or edgy or classic? Will they do designer floor-length confections at the ball, like their mother?

Glenn Beck has issued a tepid apology after mocking President Obama's 11-year-old daughter. I do not accept his apology. Not because I am unforgiving.

Previously, Beck has made sexist comments about Michelle Obama's appearance, falsely asserted that Obama's parents abandoned him for Marxism, and claimed to have taken a cane from one of Obama's aunts.

Piled high with style, these tucked-under ponies are adorable as messy buns, charming as coiled braids, and artsy when sculpted to look like bows. Where's it come from? Buns - the preferred coif of ballerinas and Diana Prince - took a trendy turn in the 1960s when Audrey Hepburn's Breakfast at Tiffany's updo became the hairstyle du jour.

WASHINGTON - President Obama ordered the commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden after deciding the risks were outweighed by the possibility "of us finally getting our man" following a decade of frustration, he said in an interview broadcast last night. The helicopter raid "was the longest 40 minutes of my life," Obama told CBS' "60 Minutes," with the possible exception of when his daughter Malia became sick with meningitis as an infant. Monitoring the commando-raid operation in the White House Situation Room a week ago, Obama said he and top aides "had a sense of when gunfire and explosions took place" halfway around the world, and knew when one of the helicopters carrying Navy SEALs made an unplanned hard landing.

Leaning forward, Dave Patnaude grabbed a handle of the 42-foot boat as it cruised offshore, spotting for the driver. "Go ahead, dude, you're good!" he shouted above the roar of engines to boat driver Peter Mazzo, who lowered the throttle. The long, yellow boat dubbed No Discipline growled as it hunkered down as if to grip the ocean. It bucked a little and then began a wind-rushing, sea-spraying flight across the water at speeds of up to 90 miles an hour. Less than a week after a high-speed boating accident claimed the lives of three Gloucester County brothers, members of the New Jersey Performance Powerboat Club gathered to demonstrate that their sport involves not only speed, but safety.

DALLAS - In just the last few days, she has danced with cheering schoolchildren, chatted with troops, swapped ideas with busy parents, and engaged in a friendly cooking competition with stars from Top Chef . Michelle Obama is on a national tour to promote the second anniversary of her campaign against childhood obesity. The images have been disarming, intriguing, and nonpolitical - just the type of thing her husband's reelection campaign can't get enough of. Michelle Obama's travels this week offer fresh evidence of what an outsize role she has assumed in the public eye and how powerful a political ally a first lady can be. She said she was "incredibly enthusiastic" about making the case for her husband's reelection.
