The President as Soccer Dad


Forget all those silly micro-labels, defined by pollsters, of the electorate as soccer moms or dads.

Just take a look at President Obama, like any other ordinary father on a Saturday, cheering on his girls, first Sasha, 7, and then Malia, 10, at their soccer games.

This is a totally new White House, complete with the athleticism of little girls in competition. They’re doing their best to beat their opponents, just like their dad. Who’s going to catch the head-butt in a photo?

    Love this post! Barack Obama does come across as the real deal dad, who wants to make a positive impression on his girls. Kudos for sharing!
