West Wing Week: "Green Eggs & Governors"

And a farmer and a Secretary General...
The weekly White House video recap has a very foodie title this week, reffing First Lady Michelle Obama's rousing dramatic reading of "Green Eggs And Ham" at the Library of Congress on Tuesday, and America's Governors convening at the White House, for meetings and the annual Governors' Dinner. (Above: Vice President Joe Biden speaks to Governors in the State Dining Room; the photo was taken, from the butler's pantry)

This week, President Obama welcomed UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and Mexican President Felipe Calderón to the White House, in addition to meeting with the Governors. President Obama also awarded the 2010 National Humanities Medals and Medals of Arts. Farmer and philosopher/economist Wendell Berry was among those honored.
