President Obama has had more than his fair share of headaches when it comes to hosting state visits. This week's state visit honoring French President Francois Hollande comes with its own unusual dynamic that the White House couldn't have anticipated when it announced plans to honor Hollande more than two months ago. Hollande, who will begin his state visit with Obama on Monday with a trip to Thomas Jefferson's picturesque estate at Monticello, arrives on the heels of his recent announcement that he's split with his companion and France's first lady Valérie Trierweiler. The split followed reports last month that Hollande had been having an affair with the actress Julie Gayet. The Hollande affair threatens to cast a shadow over the visit when the two leaders have much of substance to talk about.
