Barack Obama’s golf swing reveals he’s an athlete, a duffer and fun to play with By Michael Bamberger Senior Writer, Sports Illustrated Published: December 24, 2008 Golf.com has performed an important service. It has posted five photographs, taken by AP photographer Gerald Herbert, that shows President-elect Barack Obama on vacation in Hawaii playing golf. This is invaluable as we all know that nothing, not even a CNN special called “Obama Revealed,” reveals the soul as ruthlessly and efficiently as how one plays the old Scottish game. John F. Kennedy nearly made a hole-in-one on the short par-3 15th at Cypress Point (the best-smelling hole in all of golf, if you like the mix of eucalyptus and brackish ocean water) while running for the presidency in 1960. Kennedy, considered by presidential golfing historians to be by far the most skilled of our golf-playing presidents, was relieved to see the ball stay out. He was trying to succeed Dwight Eisenhower as president, and not as First Golfer. The game then wasn’t the populist activity it has become. Kennedy, foolishly, allowed himself to be photographed taking a golf swing in fancy loafers, no socks. Still, he won West Virginia. But Obama does not have to run from his golf. The guess here is that he’s an athlete and a duffer and fun to play with. In Photo No. 1, the first thing that strikes you is that Obama is a lefthanded golfer who plays golf wearing a watch, just like Phil Mickelson. Also like Lefty, the future president

How do you entertain a 4 month old?

How do you keep a 4 month old entertained or occupied so you can get stuff done around the house. My son is 4 months old and if I’m not carrying him, holding him or playing w/ him or taking him out somewhere, he is not happy. (literally screaming/crying) I love my son and love to do things with him (we go for walks, play, go out to the mall (he loves to be out) or just sit and read and talk to him. However, I have not been able to get my housework done for a couple of months(since he stopped sleeping so much). My house is a wreck and I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried putting him in the bouncy chair in front of baby einstein DVD, but that lasts 10 min. Also tried the swing and that doesn’t last long. I would love to put him down on the floor on his activity gym, but our house is all tile floors and I don’t feel comfortable. (I keep the activity gym on the bed and he only lays on it while supervised.) PLEASE, any advice is welcome. I’ve got to get some stuff done!

My son is 4 months almost 5. I have a swing and a bouncy chair, need something I can put him down in so I can get some housework done! Something he will like and will keep him entertained.

Activity mats/gyms?

Noah will be 10 weeks on Friday and is really starting to notice toys that are hanging from his swing and bouncer. I wanted to get him an activity gym(preferably one that works for while he’s on his back and also tummy time). Do you mommies have any suggestions or favorites?

I was looking at this one http://www.target.com/Fisher-Price-Rainforest-123-Musical-Gym/dp/B000JIJPZY/qid=1213036856/ref=br_1_7/601-5535665-0036151?ie=UTF8&node=3962141&frombrowse=1&rh=&page=1 but it has a couple bad reviews. So any other suggestions are welcomed. Thanks!
