What Obama campaign contributor is running the White House protocol office, how much did he or she raise, and to what extent does Obama place that loyalty over competence?
Barack Obama’s gift for the Queen: an iPod, your Majesty :: Toby Harnden
Barack Obama met the Queen at Buckingham Palace today and gave her a gift of an iPod loaded with video footage and photographs of her 2007 United States visit to Richmond, Jamestown and Williamsburg inÂ Virginia. In return, the Queen gave the President a silver framed signed photograph of herself and the Duke of Edinburgh – apparently a standard present for visiting dignitaries.
It is believed the Queen already has an iPod, a 6GB silver Mini version she is said to have bought in 2005 at the suggestion of Prince Andrew.
Obama previously gave the British Prime Minister a gift box of DVDs that don’t play great in Great Britain.
