Normally, when the President arrives in town, we cluck about it for days beforehand because we're all so terrified that we'll be the unlucky bastards stuck on Pico Blvd. for three hours.

But we haven't heard much about traffic delays leading up to the arrival of Michelle Obama today, and we're hoping that it stays that way.

FLOTUS is here for two days to promote her "Let's Move" campaign, according to Politico. The campaign is focused on reducing the number of American kids who are obese by encouraging physical activity, healthy eating and better food served at schools (we have to wonder if Mrs. Obama knows what she's getting herself into locally...).

Her public schedule includes an appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno today, a Democratic fundraising dinner in Beverly Hills tonight, and an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" tomorrow.
