"He really can't stop eating those," says First Lady...
President Obama has a weakness for "chips, salsa and guacamole," according to his wife. First Lady Michelle Obama is guest-editing NBC's iVillage.com website this week, and she dished on the President's favorite food indulgence in a post about healthy eating, when asked about "dealing with vices."

"Barack, his [vice] is chips and salsa and guacamole," Mrs. Obama said.
"If there are chips and salsa, he really can't stop eating those."
The First Lady has ID'd these foods as a Presidential weakness in previous interviews. And she reaffirmed that her own "vice" is French fries, something she's long admitted.
"For me, it's French fries, which is good because you can't just have French fries around, so that's helpful. But if there are French fries in the vicinity, I'm done. It's over."
The First Lady cited 14-year-old daughter Malia's "vice" as fruit juice. Sasha, 11, apparently has too many "vices" to name.
"She's kind of a free for all," Mrs. Obama said.
And speaking of vices, the First Lady is a headline on Drudge Report today, because her videos and photos on iVillage are appearing alongside the site's sex tips and other vice-related material.
White House family dinners..
As for healthy eating, Mrs. Obama also said that the best healthy habit for families "is eating dinner together on a regular basis." That's a tough call for the Obamas, since the President has lately been averaging two and three days away from the White House each week, as he makes overnight stays on the campaign trail.
"Surprisingly, the best healthy habit is eating dinner together on a regular basis," Mrs. Obama said. "I think we underestimate the importance of families sitting down around the table at a set time. And it’s hard for many families."
"It was hard for us until we got to the White House, but we talk about this all the time. Barack can at least control that part of his schedule. He can stop whatever he is doing, come home at 6:30 p.m. We kind of structure our lives around mealtime."
