Accidental Tourists Get Breakfast With Obamas (http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/Strange-News/Barack-Obama-And-Michelle-Obama-Have-Breakfast-With-White-House-Tourists-Harvey-and-Paula-Darden/Article/200912315501434?lpos=Strange_News_First_Home_Artic le_Teaser_Region_3&lid=ARTICLE_15501434_Barack_Obama_And_Michelle_Oba ma_Have_Breakfast_With_White_House_Tourists_Harvey _and_Paula_Darden)

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">A couple who arrived at the White House a day early for a pre-arranged tour ended up with an impromptu extra - breakfast with the President and his wife.

Harvey and Paula Darden, from Hogansville, Georgia, arrived at the White House on Veterans Day - the day before they should have - for a tour organised through their local politician.

To their surprise, after the couple passed the appropriate security screenings, they were taken into an invitation-only breakfast hosted by President and Mrs Obama.

Staff at the White House told the couple they were being allowed into the breakfast because there were no public tours on the day they arrived.

Thought that was very nice of the Obama's and the staff to do.

That would be pretty darn cool.

I'm sure Obama is a very nice guy. He owns a dog, and shoots pool. And while that alone obviously isn't a guarantee, it's often a pretty good start!

Good thing they were not wearing a suicide vest. Got to love the current installment of the secret service.
