Oh I agree. I think the 2 days of gushing over the "mutt like me" comment was ridiculous. "Ohhhh, he's comfortable with his race, that's what THAT means!" said the press. Well, duh, I would hope he would be at his age. I guess I'd better duck along with you.Ok, I'm *almost* going to agree with Susan here.
The media is really overdoing the whole "See!! He's just like us!!" angle to all the Obama and family stories. I like him, I voted for him, I'm very happy he's president. But I prefer not to know every mundane detail of his life and his transition to power.
A president should retain a little mystique about him.
