Would you like a more intimate glimpse of what happens in the White House?
Official White House photographer Pete Souza is now posting many of his presidential photos on the photography website Flickr. Here you can see a bit beyond what is published in the mainstream and witness President Obama's meetings with Afghan President Karzai and Pakistan President Zardari in the Oval Office, discussions with Homeland Security about swine flu in the Cabinet Room, and even the First Family watching Super Bowl 43 in the family theater of the White House with friends and colleagues!

On ourwhitehouse.org, you can learn what it takes to write a political speech in the exclusive interview with Thomas LaFauci, former speech writer to Senator and Vice President Joseph Biden. You can also discover what recreational opportunities are available to First Families in the White House, beyond the theater, as well as the history of the Oval Office. (Did you know that for 100 years presidents did not have official office space in the White House? Our first presidents worked in the Lincoln bedroom!)
