FLOTUS, Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden at first game of World Series tonight

Ah, now it is the ladies turn....

Mrs. Obama and Second Lady Jill Biden -- in their second joint appearance in a week (on Friday they discussed breast cancer awareness at a White House event) are traveling to New York for the game as part of their focus on military families. A public service announcement the two women made earlier this year about veterans will be shown at the game. The network broadcasting the World Series, by the way, is Fox, but the enmity the White House is showing Fox News evidently does not extend to Fox Sports.
Major League Baseball is dedicating the first four games to a series of civic-minded causes that could have come out of Mrs. Obama's playbook.

Game One is dedicated to returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan and the first pitch will be thrown by a military vet. The theme for Game Two is community service. Game Three, cancer awareness. Game Four, encouraging sports for inner-city kids. All of these are issues in Mrs. Obama's portfolio.
