It looks like President Barack Obama’s mother-in-law, Marian Robinson move into the White House will be permanent. The widowed Mrs. Robinson lived her entire life in Chicago. While there was some resistance at first, now she has become “quite the lady about town” President Obama said. Mrs. Robinson takes Malia, 11, and Sasha, 8, to and from school just about every day and enjoys going shopping on her own.

Michelle Obama recently said her mother seems content in her new home. The First Lady said “The nice thing is that she just walks out the gate and goes.” Courtesy:
