President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have become so friendly that Obama actually offered to host Chelsea's upcoming wedding at the White House.

According to a report in The New York Times Friday, "When Mr. Obama learned that Chelsea Clinton had become engaged, he turned to Mrs. Clinton and asked, “Does she want a White House wedding?”"

Clinton deployed her best diplomatic skills, honed from a lifetime in politics and declined the offer.

She said it was “sweet” of Obama to offer but would be “inappropriate.”

Darn. That would have made for great photographs - the Clintons back in the White House!
