Arne Joins Celeb-Studded Story-Hour

Fresh off his appearance at the 9:30 club, Arne Duncan joined the festivities at the Obama family's very first White House Easter Egg Roll this morning.

Former soap-star Josh Duhamel (whose wife, Fergie, also performed at the festivities) opened for the Ed Sec. Duncan read "Clifford Goes to Washington" to a group of about 100 people. He was joined by White House party-planner-in-chief Desiree Rogers.

The storytime stage, which you can view live here, also included readings from President Obama ("Where the Wild Things Are") and Michelle Obama and her mother, Marion Robinson (aka the First Grandma). They read "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie"— the story of a demanding, never satisfied mouse (draw your own political parallel in the comments section).
