Barack Obama is our generation’s John F. Kennedy. He’s young, hip, filled with the prospect of change and the man can sing! We all know a few things about him: He’s an eloquent speaker, a loving father, and gives a great address.

I’ve got details on his first date with Michelle, his vices, and some that will make you realize he’s no different than you or me. Happy Birthday Mr. President!
