Newly Kosher for the White House

Last year's White House Passover seder, a new tradition instituted by President Obama, apparently did not come without problems:
Then came what is now remembered as the Macaroon Security Standoff. At 6:30, with the Seder about to start, Neil Cohen, the husband of Michelle Obama’s friend and adviser Susan Sher, was stuck at the gate bearing flourless cookies he had brought from Chicago. They were kosher for Passover, but not kosher with the Secret Service, which does not allow food into the building.
May your Passovers be joyous, and without major security problems.
