White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters July 8 that he expected the president and pope to have a frank discussion, but he did not expect it to be focused exclusively on their differences.

Pope Benedict XVI welcomed U.S. President Barack Obama to the Vatican July 10, and the two discussed world issues addressed at the Group of Eight summit. Obama arrived at the Vatican shortly before 4 p.m., and a squad of Swiss Guards saluted him in the St. Damasus Courtyard of the Apostolic Palace.

No comment. Well, a small one. I liked that picture. It looks like they are bidding for a good dance, well matched for each other.
