(Newser) – Malia and Sasha Obama just moved into the White House, and they may soon get a tour of an even more exciting place: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry Potter himself—or, rather, actor Daniel Radcliffe—invited the first daughters to visit the set and said he “would be honored to be their personal tour guide,” the Daily Mail reports.

Turns out Radcliffe is a bit of a voting activist when he's not appearing on Broadway in the altogether. “I’m so happy for this country," the 19-year-old UK citizen said of Malia and Sasha's dad. "He’s everything the rest of the world liked about America and now likes again.”
