After President Obama was elected, his mother-in-law said she loved her family, but she loved her home in Chicago too. "The White House reminds me of a museum, and it's like, how do you sleep in a museum?" Marian Robinson had told People magazine. One whirlwind year later -- after world travel, a state dinner, retreats at Camp David and holiday extravaganzas -- it appears the first lady's mother is sleeping quite well. For Robinson, 72, life in the "President's House" has evolved from a trial run to what looks like an I'm-here-for-the-duration stay.

Opening a three-day Western campaign swing, President Obama said Wednesday night that if Republicans regained control of Congress they would reinstate policies that cut taxes for the richest Americans, make it easier for companies to pollute, and let middle-class families "fend for themselves. " "This election isn't about anger; it isn't about fear," Obama told a crowd of about 10,000 people at the Oregon Convention Center. "This election is a choice, and the stakes could not be higher.

Presidential politics can be rough-and-tumble, but it was a friendly basketball game on Friday that gave President Obama a cut on his upper lip requiring 12 stitches. Playing in a post-Thanksgiving holiday pickup game with visiting family members and administration aides, Obama was on defense when a player turned into him to shoot and elbowed him in the mouth, according to the White House. The culprit was Reynaldo Decerega, 38, director of programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, the White House said.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Oregon State Coach Craig Robinson is also known as the first brother-in-law, as his sister is Michelle Obama, wife of President Obama. So where will Robinson be on Tuesday when the presidential election is held? "That's classified information," Robinson joked Thursday during the Pac-12 men's basketball media day. Robinson then said that he'd be in Chicago, the site of President Obama's election-night rally.  Robinson obviously expects Obama to win, but by how much?

Oregon State's basketball coach said Tuesday he won't be available to answer questions on next Tuesday's Pacific 10 coaches' call. Reaction: This team went 0-18 in conference last season, finally scrounged up a win this month, and now this first-year coach is big-timing the media? This had better be really important. "I'll probably be standing somewhere outside," Craig Robinson joked. Robinson will go from hosting Washington on Saturday to toasting Washington on Tuesday.

USC couldn't run down Washington last weekend but chased the media out of practice Monday in the aftermath of a game at Galen in which the guards (security) had to separate the guards (Daniel Hackett and Dwight Lewis). UCLA was picked to finish first in the Pacific 10 Conference by near-unanimous consent but is tied for third with four games left after allowing 82 points at home to Washington State, a team that had to pass a collection plate to collect 44 points against USC in January.

Kris Jenner says she regrets divorcing her first husband Robert Kardashian, the late O.J. Simpson defense lawyer and father to her children, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian Jr. The reality TV mom's revelation comes just a few days after the announcement that she and second husband Bruce Jenner were living separately after 22 years of marriage and were much "happier" having separate homes -- she in Calabasas and he in Malibu.

When Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg submitted “This Is the End” to the ratings board of the Motion Picture Assn. of America, the co-directors didn't just expect their raunchy Judgment Day comedy to be slapped with an NC-17 rating -- they secretly planned on receiving the adults-only rating. Opening June 12, “This Is the End” features an array of actors playing themselves. James Franco is hosting a party at his home when the apocalypse starts. Many celebrities perish, but Franco, Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson survive and try to make it through the end of days.
