Interesting article in today's Sunday Times:


With difficult state elections and a crucial military decision looming, President Barack Obama sat down with his wife Michelle last month to give an in-depth magazine interview about a subject that has hitherto not ranked highly on the White House political agenda — the state of the first couple’s marriage.

The president used the occasion to complain that when he recently hopped aboard Air Force One to fly his wife to New York for dinner and a Broadway show, “people made it into a political issue”.

For all Obama’s glamour and sophisticated intellect, he is in danger of being seen as a failing politician. And familiarity with the details of his private life may quickly turn to contempt.

Thought this last paragraph was interesting.

It must be tough for even Michelle to put up with O's inflated opinion of himself.

I'm sure her ego is on par with his.

Definitely. It would have been better if this would have happened before November 2008.
