    I feel only the eloquence of Salt-N-Pepa can sum up this historic day:

    "What a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man"

    And Michelle? Mahlia and Sasha? What an incredible 1st Family we have!!

    That's because no one wanted to go to Bush's. I think they just rented a movie and got a keg.
