Obamas Europe-Bound

It’s time to dust off Air Force One: The president and first lady will make their first official visit to Europe at the end of the month. The March 31-April 5 trip will focus on the global financial crisis and security issues, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says. First up is a stop in London for the Group of 20 summit on April 2; next, the first couple travels to Baden-Baden and Kehl, Germany, and later Strasbourg, France, for a NATO summit April 3-4. The trip wraps up April 5 with an EU-US summit in Prague.
