Ever since the White House was first occupied in 1800, there have been rumors of hauntings, but I got this story direct from the President. No, not President Obama. I first heard about the White House ghosts directly from the lips of Ronald Reagan.
While Washington is all a-twitter over two society climbers crashing the gates at an Obama soirée, in the grand sweep of history, it was a fairly minor event. No one was in danger, and no real harm was done, nobody got dosed with LSD.
As a First Lady historian, there's something humorous in the current "debate" about whether showing skin is socially acceptable for First Ladies. It's been a topic of discussion since the start of the presidency.
