FILE - This Oct. 27, 2013, file photo shows President Barack Obama, second from left, with first lady Michelle Obama, right, and their daughters Malia, left, and Sasha, as they walk through Lafayette Park from the White House in Washington, to attend a church service. President Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is on his mind now. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm.
