Berlusconi coming to White House



Just days after Obama arrives home from overseas, he'll have to switch roles and play host for Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

Berlusconi will drop by the White House on June 15.

From the White House:
President Obama will welcome Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi of Italy to the White House on Monday, June 15th. The United States and Italy, a NATO ally, have strong bilateral relations and partner together around the world to promote peace, prosperity, and democratic freedoms. The President looks forward to discussing preparations for the G-8 Summit that will take place in L'Aquila, Italy in July, and consulting with the Prime Minister on a broad range of strategic issues of mutual concern.

Berlusconi is a colorful character. If there's a press availability, it should make for some interesting TV.
