  1. Obama and Hollande Hit It Off but Washington Doubts Remain

    Presidents Hollande and Obama penned an op-ed for the Washington Post yesterday celebrating their countries’ friendship. The move signals Obama’s willingness to improve relations with France at the start of Hollande’s visit to the capital. But unlike former French state visits, Hollande has not been invited to address Congress, which may reflect Washington’s distrust over France’s interventions in Africa and stance on Iran. Social secretaries aren’t too thrilled either: they had to tear up dinner invitations printed before Hollande’s scandalous separation from his partner.
