Visiting DC and spent 5+ hours in The Museum of American History. The American Presidency: A Glorious Burden explores the role of the president and commander in chief, manager of the economy, chief communicator through a selection of presidential artifacts. Of course there’s a chronological illustration of presidential portraits and photographs. Several young kids, toddlers, squealed upon seeing the new photograph of President Obama. This happened multiple times across diverse children. At least they know their president and brought a smile.
Another thought: my guess is that Obama’s name is easy and fun for kids to say.
