H.W.’s happy; Michelle Obama pins; and Romney’s out of the Fox-hole (read-this roundup)

Happy H.W. — HBO’s documentary on former president George H. W. Bush, “41,” sounds . . . a little dull. But it sounds like life post-White House is a blast. The ex-prez seems content and affable throughout the film, zipping around on golf carts and boats.

Pin this — Ann Romney is on it — now first lady Michelle Obama’s joined Pinterest. Is it because she loves to ogle recipes concocted by suburban housewives? Or is it because the site has millions of users — mostly women (read: important voters)?

Out of the Foxhole — We didn’t realize that of all the TV interviews GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's done this cycle, none have been on a non-FOX News show. Well, guess he had to break out of the comfort zone sometime: he’ll be on CBS’s “Face the Nation” this weekend.
