President Obama turns 50 today. He celebrated in Chicago with two fundraisers and a Happy Birthday serenade from none other than fellow Chicago native Jennifer Hudson (who, since her recent rendezvous with Weight Watchers has made her far more svelte than fellow presidential crooner Marilyn Monroe). One dinner commanded a $38,500 price tag per guest and was attended by 100 attendants. Not bad for a fundraiser and birthday bash.
I disagree with President much of the time, and he’s had a rough year. But, hat’s off to him on his special day, and I hope he has many more to come.
