(Newser) – No gatecrashers at President Obama’s second state dinner, but there was one yesterday as he spoke at the White House. A rodent, presumably a rat, ran across the Rose Garden steps just before Obama walked out to speak (watch the video at left—the rodent gets quite a reaction from the crowd). It then made another appearance as the president was speaking (AP has the photo, at left), but Obama never noticed, ABC News reports.
