President Barack Obama indicated last fall that he wasn’t keen on daughters Malia and Sasha tuning in for the Kardashians, but mom Michelle is way cooler than that and “[doesn't] trip” over the young ladies staying updated on the lives of the Los Angeles family members.

President Barack Obama’s first ever kiss with wife Michelle sounds more like the first kiss between two teenagers at the beginning of their relationship. That makes the smooch story all the more adorable. What’s even better is that the story of the first couple’s very first peck has just been commemorated on a plaque outside a Chicago ice cream shop, where the spark-flying incident took place many years ago.

Daily Beast contributor Meghan McCain is in a rough place right now. On the one hand, the Republican Arizona girl wants Mitt Romney to become our next president, but on the other, she wants Barack Obama to take Hillary Clinton on as his VP candidate, and given the rise of the current secretary of state’s popularity, the GOP would really struggle to compete against her.

Ever had a moment so awesome you felt you could die happy and have lived a full life? I’m hoping that’s applicable to Josephine “Ann” Harris, an Ohio restaurant owner who passed away from a heart attack soon after meeting President Barack Obama.

Almost everybody falls victim to potty mouth slips on occasion — apparently even President Barack Obama, who reportedly cursed immediately after delivering Barnard College’s commencement address on Monday. We know you’re disappointed, but he’s only human.

When you were a kid, did you ever do something so stupid or shameful that people would never let you live it down, even well into adulthood? For me, it was kicking an eighth grade softball player as a puny, defenseless little ginger, but for President Barack Obama, it was probably being made to eat dog meat with family in Indonesia.
