The Obamas are turning out to be pretty weak gift-givers.  First those DVDs, now this... they couldn't have at least sprung for a nice Custom Shop reissue?  ;)

Not bad if its what i think it is.  Didn't she actually put her arm around Queen Elisabeth as well?

I wouldn't turn that down, are you kidding? Anyhow she's a freaking folk star in France besides being a former supermodel. Being the first lady of France is a little sideline for her. And she posed nude too.

For 7 grand they could have bought a Martin that SLAYS that Gibby... IMHO anyway.  But it was a nice gesture, I'll grant you that.  Carla Bruni is a fox!

Actually, the Queen put HER arm around Michelle Obama!

I sure wouldn't turn down a gift like that either, but I agree there are better choices in the, uh, unlimited price range.

If I had an unlimited budget with which to give gifts, I would have something special made for the person rather than going to Guitar Center and buying something off the wall.
