Breaking political news: Barack, Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama are finally welcoming their new puppy to the White House!

The black Portuguese water dog comes from a kennel in Texas. It was sold to a family who gave it back, so will be "re-homed" to the first family.

Shrewd move by Barack Obama, choosing a rejected dog who needs a second home. Not only is it nice, but animal rights peeps will go less insane.

The six-month-old dog is named Charlie, though the Obamas will rename it.

A website, FirstDogCharlie.com, claims to have a photo of him! See below!

The alleged (and cute!) First Dog, left, and his relative Splash, right, who belongs to U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy. Portuguese Water Dogs are hypoallergenic.

Charlie will be presented to the family by U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy, whose own Portuguese water dogs, Splash and Sunny, are from the same kennel. Sasha and Malia's new pet is actually from the same lineage as the Kennedy dogs.

The arrival of the First Pet has been a hot topic - almost as much so as Michelle Obama fashion - ever since the president promised his daughters Malia and Sasha, ages 10 and 6, that they would get a puppy if he were elected to the presidency.

After taking office, the U.S. President said they'd get a dog in the spring, as the family itself would still be getting acclimated to its new digs prior to that, and the warmer weather would make his daughters more apt to walk it.

The Portuguese Water Dog was a natural fit for the Obamas because of Malia's allergies - the breed is one of the few that are completely hypoallergenic.

According to Michelle Obama, the young girls have floated Frank and Moose as possible names for their forthcoming furry friend.

** UPDATE: The First Dog has arrived! Earlier today, a 6-month-old Portuguese Water Dog named Bo was delivered to The White House. Check out a photo of him NOW!

Since January 20, the celebrity gossip craze has been Michelle Obama fashion - what fancy designers and average brands the First Lady wears, and so on.

But what about what the President watches on TV?

Well, according to TV Guide, the Commander-in-Chief's television tastes include sports, Hannah Montana and - above all else - Vincent Chase.

HBO's Entourage is the Barack Obama's favorite show, which is appropriate, as Ari Gold was inspired by real-life agent Ari Emanuel, the brother of Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. So how much does Obama like Entourage?

"[W]e would have these Sunday night campaign conference calls at the same time as Entourage," press secretary Robert Gibbs said.

"I remember one time I e-mailed him because the call was scheduled for the last 15 minutes of Entourage and I said, 'Just be late and we can just watch Entourage and still get on and do the call. And it worked. We got to see Entourage."

The commander-in-chief was also a fan of The Wire. Last year, he named Omar, a gay drug dealer, as his favorite character because he's "fascinating."

For more family-friendly fare, Barack Obama takes in Hannah Montana and SpongeBob SquarePants with his daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7.

Not surprisingly, the basketball aficionado can't be without his ESPN either. Obama, who correctly predicted that the University of North Carolina would win the NCAA championship in his pool, watches SportsCenter religiously.

Hey, beats the local news, right?

"He’s always asking: ‘Is that new? I haven’t seen that before.’ It’s like, Why don’t you mind your own business? Solve world hunger. Get out of my closet."

- Michelle Obama on her husband's interest in fashion

Reporters are not the only ones with a particularly keen interest in what Michelle Obama wears these days. Barack Obama, Michelle says, notices everything.

In fact, Michelle has learned not to wear a certain gray metallic belt when the president is around: "Barack calls it my Star Trek belt,” the first lady said in an interview with the New York Times this week. “He doesn’t understand fashion.”

She teasingly imitated him: “You didn’t need more shoes. The shoes you had on yesterday were fine. Why can’t you just wear that for the rest of the presidency?”

The First Lady breaks ground on the White House vegetable garden.

The First Lady of the United States said she was not naturally thin and, like most other people, Michelle Obama must exercise and watch what she eats.

“I have hips, and I have them covered up with pleats,” she said.

To keep those hips from spreading, she said, she follows an exercise regimen of light weights, calisthenics, jump-rope and a cardiovascular routine.

Fresh from filling out NCAA brackets and trying to keep the U.S. from coming apart at the seams, President Barack Obama stopped by the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, the first time a sitting president has visited a late-night talk show.

While the economy was, as expected, the No. 1 topic, Barack Obama made observations a little less terrifying than America being a "culture of greed" that must change if the United States is going to pull itself out of the current financial crisis.

"In Washington, it's a little bit like American Idol except everyone is Simon Cowell," the president quipped. "Everybody's got an opinion."

Obama's visit followed the usual arc of celebrity talk show appearances: the funny thing that happened on the way to the show (the Secret Service not wanting him to walk); promoting the project (his economic agenda); and personal anecdotes.

Towards the end, the president made fun of his bowling ineptness, having posted a career-high 129 recently. "That's very good, Mr. President," Leno said sarcastically.

"It's like the Special Olympics or something," Obama replied.

Ouch, Barack. This is the sort of remark that may be commonplace in modern humor, but is something you'd want the president to say, or even think?

Former figure skating champ Tonya Harding is angry and indignant that Barack Obama would name-drop her as a punchline during last year's presidential campaign.

Note to Tonya: He's far from the first, sweetie.

For those unfamiliar with her, Harding won the 1991 and 1994 U.S. Figure Skating titles, but was arrested after her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly conspired to attack rival Nancy Kerrigan at a practice session before the '94 Olympic trials.

She later went on to a classy career of leaking sex tapes with Gillooly, drinking heavily and getting arrested a lot, with a brief stint in professional boxing thrown in. Pics of her may also appear in the dictionary under "trailer trash."

Anyway, that brings us to today.

Harding says she is pissed at the President of the United States after he "used her" (referencing the above incident) while seeking the White House last year. The Fox interviewer sums it up best when he responds: "You are a piece of work" ...

If you watch MTV's The City (or The Hills, the similar, better-known reality show that spawned it), you will definitely appreciate this spoof Newsweek has created.

In this promo for The District, President Barack Obama narrates and discusses some of the challenges of moving to a new city, unsure of who he can trust, and taking on a stressful new job - the "opportunity of a lifetime" one could even say.

The District uses The City's theme song - The Pussycat Dolls' "On Top of the World” while mocking the narration of Whitney Port and the opening credits perfectly.

Check out the video below, which includes a sneak peek of the first episode, in which Barack butts heads with co-worker (U.S. Treasury Secretary) Tim Geithner...
