Transparency, White House-style « Hot Air: "Dylan Byers’ latest example leans much closer to the latter end of that spectrum. The First Lady has gone on a vacation to China, an important trading partner and emerging competitor at the least in the Pacific Rim, a trip that should have some public interest.
