Obama 2008

From USA Today:

President Obama has just issued the traditional presidential proclamation in honor of Father’s Day, which — for those of you who haven’t yet scored any cards, golf tees or ties — is Sunday.

The first Dad will have his own family on hand to pay him homage: First lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia have returned from a week’s vacation in California.

In this year’s Father’s Day proclamation, the president pays tribute not just to biological dads, but to foster and adoptive fathers as well as men who make “compassionate commitments outside the home by serving as mentors, tutors, or big brothers to young people in their community.” He also tips his hat to non-traditional households.
