Today is President Barack Obama’s 48th birthday. The president is working in the Oval Office, but he has no public schedule today. Also, Helen Thomas, dean of the White House Press Corps turns 89 today. Like most birthdays in the past, she is at work at the White House. Presidents Nixon and Clinton were among a long list of Presidents to give her a birthday cake in the past on her birthday. On his birthday, should President Obama repeat the Thomas Birthday cake tradition?
