Now I Know Why I Like President Obama

Call me a hopeless romantic, but despite the moving speeches, the poems, the Aretha Franklin song (and her really big hat), the thumbs up by Malia, the poetry, the two day concert, the list goes on and on, what grabbed me most about President Obama is that this guy really loves his wife. No matter how much weight he has on his shoulders (and he's got plenty), at the heart of it, he has accomplished his dreams and then some, with a supportive wife, two gorgeous daughters and a family who has encouraged him to shatter stereotypes and achieve the unthinkable.

And today, as I was watching him sign several proclamations, I noticed something that I truly admire...President Obama is a southpaw!!! Which means, he's creative, a visionary and a born leader. Why do I know that? Simple, I'm a lefty too and despite my terrible handwriting, I've been told there are lots of advantages to being born with this trait. Sure I have a million ideas a minute, but no matter the situation, I always love to think of ways to make things bigger, better and brighter. And hopefully, that's exactly what our new president will do over the next four years.

Are you a righty or lefty? Do you think that has anything to do with the way you think or go about your daily routine? Share your comments now! And if you missed the Obama's first dance, have no fear - Role Mommy has it on our home page!

    I realized he was a southpaw (like ME!) during his campaign! I have always been proud to be a southpaw-to NOT be like the norm! I feel like I stand out but in a good way! Seeing him sign on Tuesday I was proud not only for him being a southpaw also but to be an American!
