Here’s the full video of President Obama’s fireside hangout with several nice people and me (and eventually my wife Sarah). I asked him about pennies, how ideological rigidity is stymying climate change policy, and then he told my unborn kid not to forget to be awesome.
All of these things really happened. Thanks to the President, whomever prepped him about nerdfighteria, and everyone at YouTube and google+ for making this possible.
Today is the anniversary of Rosa Parks’ refusal to sit in the back of the bus in Montgomery, Ala. And this photograph of President Obama sitting on that exact same bus 57 years later is a poignant reminder of just how much America has changed in half a century. The image was taken at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., where the humble 36-seat General Motors bus is on display. Like this simple picture of the president, the bus is an ordinary thing that represents extraordinary progress. [Source] [x]
