The Registry database contains ONLY .COM, .NET, .ORG, .EDU domains and
Registrars.

I could be mistaken, but I think that this is simply a matter of setting up a third level domain which contains the phrase "whitehouse.gov".

I propose a test: CowboyNeal, if you're listening, set up "microsoft.com.owes.money.to.slashdot.org"

Not to be confused with whitehouse.com, which is a pr0n site. [Ed. Note: was a pr0n site]<-! haze ->

Oh, and, ahem... You need to use the .gov whois server:

$ whois whitehouse.gov
