• The AP introduced a new column “Capital Culture” today, a joint venture between the WH team in DC and the Lifestyles team in NY. From the release: “This new column will include profiles of key administration players as well as the lesser known people who make the White House and Congress work. It also will provide insider glimpses of Washington power brokers and explore how the Obamas are impacting American culture, from fashion to gardening to pickup basketball.”
