Podcast #55: Presidents are Dads Too

dd-itBarack Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America.  In actuality, he’s only the 43rd man to serve as President (Grover Cleveland served as both the 22nd and 24th).  All of our Presidents to date have been dads (in one form or another), yet only three had children born while in the White House.  Go figure…


In this episode, with assistance from Joshua Kendall (more precisely with assistance from his book First Dads: Parenting and Politics from George Washington to Barack Obama), we share Presidential parental anecdotes and wisdom.  From Abe Lincoln to Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama, there’s much to glean and some to squeam (Tyler and Nixon, yikes). Perhaps after this week, we will have our first, First Mom.
