Obama Iron Chef Contest

Talk about a meal change in the White House. Bush didn't care for anything "green" or "wet" but the Obamas eat a lot of fresh food, the NY Daily News reports.

"They try to limit the sweets and they include a lot of fruits,vegetables and lean meats in their meals," an Obama pal said. "Of course that isn't always possible when he has been campaigning."

Here's the three chefs in the running for White House chef: Art Smith, who prepared Obama's meal at Oprah's fund-raiser for the candidate; Rick Bayless, owner of Chicago Mexican restaurants Topolobampo and Frontera Grill; and Daniel Young, who cooked for Obama at the Democratic Convention, the paper says.

So who's in the running for White House Gardener?
