    Finally we see the women behind the leaders of world governments, and a brain trust that probably defies definition. . . .

    Wouldn't have been great if Hillary were president and Bill had to host the spouses.

    ... but how come there's 22 spouses in the picture? Is there a polygamist in the G-20?

    What a graceful lady! I must say that despite what the naysayers say, our President and first lady are doing a fine job. No one said it would be easy but I can see success on the horizon. All I ask is that we be patient and give our President the space he needs to succeed. If we support our President, our enemies will worry and will have to respond. Let us not be divided for cheap political gains.

  20. A Democrat of 51 years who has finally got smart to their follishness.

    Now if they can get their spouses to back the hades off and let them run the country we won't have anymore problems. Ad this is from a man who is tired of all the ignorant nonsense out off the men who think their so proper and correct. Only if it benefits them and the people can go to the devil.

    Good Job, First Lady Obama. It's so nice to see smiles and laughter.
    Oh how I pray this country get back on the right track, enough already with the hate and fighting.
    Now, if only this country could stop the hating., and blocking of everything this New President is doing,
    "No weapons form shall prosper aganist this President and his admin. when they learn this rule they will see changes and ask for healing among the people of this great nation.
    Wake up people the world is passing you by, get on the train it will not stop, or wait for the ones who know not what is taking place (2009).
    Not 1809.

    Wouldn't the taller members of the group normally be situated at the ends of the rows, while the "height challenged" members are placed in the center? Not to nitpick, but if I didn't know better, I might jump to the conclusion that the tall gal in the center of the photo (partially blocking the view of the gal behind her), might have "politely requested" her positioning.
