You won't get to meet President Barack Obama or the first lady in person, but you can visit 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. - online. Like the presidential home, the White House website graciously welcomes visitors from all over the world, providing an inside look at the men and women who head the administration.
Here you can get deeper insight into our country's executive branch. President Obama's page links to a detailed biography, the full text of the latest State of the Union Address, and outlines of the president's major policies and initiatives. Of course, you can find photos of the president at recent events here, too, along with current press releases. First lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, have their own pages tailored to their roles and interests.
The White House website does more than invite the public inside the personal homes of the president and the vice president. You can also access a wealth of government information resources: executive orders, presidential appointments, and the president's work on issues such as immigration, homeland security, and the budget. Enjoy videos on everything from recent speeches and visits by foreign dignitaries to the history of the White House itself.
But perhaps most intriguing are the "Ask the White House" and "Interactive White House" features, which invite the public to submit questions over the Internet to high-ranking administration officials through either an online form or live chat. The answers are posted online and provide fascinating insight to how the White House works day to day.
