President Obama, you had a wonderful victory followed by a very rough year and a half. I would not like to be walking in your moccasins. I hope you will have some fun today. Forty-nine! You only have this year left in your forties ... use it wisely.
From today's Writer's Almanac ...
Today is President Barack Obama's 49th birthday. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on this day in 1961, despite whatever you've heard of the contrary.
He's the author of the New York Times best-selling books Dreams from My Father (1995) and The Audacity of Hope (2006).
