We know that President Barack Obama and wife Michelle went for an early Christmas morning gym workout at a Marine base near their Hawaiian holiday home in Kailua. But we didn’t actually see them.
Tales from the Trail
First lady Michelle Obama’s favorite childhood Christmas present was a dollhouse, a gift that may have presaged her current role as the nation’s tastemaker, admired and followed for her stylish clothing and the mark she is making on the White House.
Cheering crowds greeted U.S. President Barack Obama in Norway as he received one of the world’s great honors but at least one person was there to ensure that the pomp and circumstance of winning the Nobel Peace Prize did not go to his head.
The First Family swooped in for a swift spot of volunteering Wednesday at Martha’s Table, about two miles from the White House, handing out turkeys and groceries to a fast-moving line of the local needy.
President Barack Obama walked in the rain among the graves of U.S. casualties from the Iraq and Afghan wars at Arlington National Cemetery and took an unscheduled detour into section 60, a thicket of simple white headstones, to mark Veterans Day.
