Life in the White House

The White House is truly the people's home. It stands as a monument to our ancestors and the democratic ideals upon which they modeled our nation. Inside it are precious gifts from the past that serve to remind us of our cultural heritage. If you do come to Washington, I hope that you will take time to visit in person.

The White House is also the center of our nations government. The President and I have had the privilege of hosting many public events here, from the White House Conference on Early Childhood Development to formal State Dinners. As First Lady, I have met many wonderful people here at the White House. Princess Diana, Nelson Mandela, and many other leaders, entertainers, and ordinary citizens have been our guests.
