Check This Out: Obama Weather

Most Americans look to Barack Obama for change. So now, you can look to him when you’re changing your clothes. This cheeky website, Obama-Weather.com, shows you how to dress for the day according to illustrations of the Prez. Foggy and a bit chilly? He’s prepared in a parka and jeans. For wet days, a raincoat and an umbrella, depending on if there are light or heavy showers. When the weather’s nice, Mr. President gets decked out in a bright t-shirt and leather jacket.

A Sneak Peek Into The Obama Marriage!

If you’re anything like me, you’re jealous of Michelle Obama. Those clothes. Those cutie-pie kids. That husband. That Glamour cover. And that address! But in an eye-opening New York Times Magazine cover story on the Obama marriage, Michelle is candid about their relationship’s ups and (surprising number of) downs. All political marriages are, by definition, unconventional. But to hear Michelle tell it, she has often felt like a single mother with Barack traveling all the time as a Senator.

“This was sort of the eye-opener to me, that marriage is hard. But going into it, no one ever tells you that. They just tell you, ‘Do you love him?

In other gay rights news, at a human rights dinner this weekend, President Obama vowed to end “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the 16-year-old policy which bans gays from serving in the military if they are openly gay. About. Effing. Time. [Wall Street Journal] Keep reading »

Yes, He Can Win A Nobel Peace Prize, But Does He Deserve It?

People were shocked when President Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace prize today for his initiatives to reduce nuclear weapons, reduce conflict in the Muslim world, and promote worldwide diplomacy. Why so shocking, since these are Nobel-worthy causes? Because Obama had only been in office for two weeks before the February 1 Nobel nomination deadline. The Nobel Committee doesn’t seem to think it’s a problem. They attribute a change in global mood to Obama’s calls for peace and cooperation, even though his initiatives have not yet had the time “to bear fruit.” So what do you think? Does he deserve the award? [MSNBC]

After the jump, see how Obama stacks up to the other presidents that have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Keep reading »
