If anyone is interested in coverage of the President playing ping-pong with David Cameron, or sitting for a State Dinner with the Queen of England, you'll have to look elsewhere. The relative stiffness and formality of the trip to England, at least as portrayed in some of the coverage I've seen, leaves me a little cold, especially in contrast to the warm and enthusiastic reception the Obamas received from the people of Ireland. The President's speech in Dublin on Monday is especially worth watching, if people haven't seen it already. (White House transcript here) And if I could have one wish granted right now, I think it might be to be introduced by Enda Kenny.
Really nice high-def video from C-Span. (I'm going to have to start looking at their video library more often.) I recommend blowing this one up to full screen size.
