President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama shared their first kiss outside a Baskin-Robbins in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood. Does this make you more likely to re-elect the president? His campaign apparently hopes so.
The first couple's first smooch leads off a list of Obama's "25 Things You Don't Know About Me" in US Weekly. The magazine put five of the supposed revelations online, and the remaining 20 will be in the issue that hits newsstands on Friday, just four days before Election Day.
Campaign aides contend that many undecided voters—last-minute, low-information, make-up-my-mind-in-the-voting-booth voters—get their news about politics from entertainment media. That's also why Obama spent so much time after his first debate with Mitt Romney talking about Big Bird: That exchange played well on such media.
The other four items online have already been fairly well publicized:
2. I was once bear-hugged by a Republican pizza shop owner in Florida. I thought it was hilarious, but I'm not sure how the Secret Service felt about it.
3. "Homeland" is my favorite TV show.
4. Malia entered high school this year. I'm not looking forward to when she's old enough to go to prom.
5. I voted early in Chicago. No matter who you're voting for, there's no reason to stay home and not make your voice heard in this election. Find out how you can vote early at GottaVote.com.
