By Paul Bedard, Washington Whispers.
Date nights are still a part of the Obama family, and it seemed appropriate to ask in our latest Whispers poll just where people think the new first family should go for their initial date after arriving in the White House. To our surprise, the poll found that a traditional dinner and movie or play just can't hold a candle to the rarest venue for any date anywhere: right inside the White House.
The Whispers Poll
President-elect Barack Obama and Michelle Obama like to hold fancy date nights in Chicago.
