the first lady sings

Here in America a headline like that would most likely refer to some sort of courtroom proceeding. I'm not holding my breath waiting for Laura to give up George, however.

Actually, I don't think anyone in the White House has done any serious singing since Harry Truman's daughter made a brief run as an opera singer.

But in France they do things differently. French President Nicolas Sarkozy's current trophy wife (he got a new one right after getting elected) is a music pop-star in Europe.

She's not bad. She plays the guitar tracks herself too. But that album cover... can you imagine Barbara Bush lounging around with a guitar and no bra? A sousaphone maybe, but not a guitar.
