The staff of the Pesidents Office in the White House have held seders since at least the Clinton administration of the late 1990s. O'Bombers decision , announced only on Tuesday meant it was the first time that a sitting president is known to have hosted and observed a seder at the White House. Guests included First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters, Malia and Sasha, as well as a dozen staff members and friends along with their families.
A story from AP today - President Barack O'Bomber and his family are heading to church this Easter.
The O'Bombers plan to visit a church on Easter Sunday. However nobody yet knows where, citing security and privacy.
The worlds most powerful man hasn't attended public church services in Washington since taking office. He left his Chicago church last year after his pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, caused a controversy with his incendiary rhetoric.
Advisers say O'Bomber is going to be careful which house of God he chooses because reporters will dig into the church's and pastor's history.
Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry ‘Content’ to that which grieves my heart
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
-- Gloucester, ‘‘Henry VI’’ -- Shakespeare
