    Hi, Stacy! While Hillary is going to work herself ragged again the day after her 63rd birthday, the Indian newspaper report on the Obamas’ upcoming trip to Mumbai has interesting tidbits like:

    “To ensure fool-proof security, the President’s team has booked the entire the Taj Mahal Hotel, including 570 rooms, all banquets and restaurants. Since his security contingent and staff will comprise a huge number, 125 rooms at Taj President have also been booked, apart from 80 to 90 rooms each in Grand Hyatt and The Oberoi hotels. The NCPA, where the President is expected to meet representatives from the business community, has also been entirely booked.” And the First Couple are bringing their own chef and not sampling Indian food for fear that it might be spiked.
