Obama Has Slumber Party

Grab your pillows! It's sleepover time for the presidential candidate.


What's a dad to do after he makes history and becomes the first African-American presidential nominee from a major party? Host a sleepover, of course!

Barack Obama is spending his post-primary weekend at home in Chicago, hosting a sleepover birthday party for daughter Sasha. He may be the first person to beat the Clintons in a campaign, but he's not the first parent to have his house overrun by eight 7-year-olds.

"These kids are planning to make pizza so who knows what our kitchen will look like," Obama told reporters. "They shouldn't call these sleepovers. They should call them wake-overs."

The 46-year-old Illinois senator is not only playing stellar dad this weekend, he's also carving out a little time for mama Obama, Michelle. He's taking her out on a date. We're guessing he's got a little making up to his wife for handling everything on her own for the past several months. Great start, Barack.

i think its great that he is a down to earth dad, and he puts his family first. when you are married for a long time, you have to find ways to spice up the marriage. i’ve been with m husband now for over 12 years and we still go on dates. you have too because you will get bored if you don’t have fun.
