President-elect Barack Obama kicked off the family's 10-day vacation in warm Hawaii with a trip to the golf course. It's a nice change of pace for the future leader of the free world. Lately, with the economic crisis and the Blagojevich scandal, he must have felt like the golf ball and the world the club. But Obama never shows it. Take a look at the laid back president in action.
President-elect Barack Obama wasn't going to let a little snow stop him from waiting for his wife outside his daughters' school on Friday. The future First Couple were attending a party for their girls' last day at school in Chicago, Ill. Despite being a Hawaii native, Obama braved the wintry weather, without a heavy coat nonetheless, like much of the nation. He may be moving into the White House in January, but Obama, isn't afraid to do things, just like us.
He may be busy preparing for the White House, but Sunday afternoon, Barack Obama took a break from his president-elect duties to pick out a Christmas tree with his daughters on Chicago's South Side.
No nanny and chauffeur here! Before boarding a flight to meet with President Bush at the White House on Nov. 10, Obama dropped his daughters off at school in Chicago.
Barack Obama may be the USA president-elect, but he still likes to chow down on some grub just like us. Let's hope he doesn't lose his laid-back moments after he moves into the White House in January.
But Obama's seemingly favorite thing to do? Eat! He engulfs a cheesesteak, above, on a campaign stop in Phillidelphia...
