Washington, Jan 16 (ANI): US President-elect Barack Obama, who spared a few moments with major donors to his Presidential Inaugural Committee, shared a moment he had with his two daughters to lighten the mood.
Obama had taken Malia and Sasha to the Lincoln Memorial a few nights ago, where they looked at the statue, and read the Gettysburg address inscribed on one wall as well as Lincoln’’s second inaugural address inscribed on the other.
A source at the conference call revealed to the Washington Post that Obama said his 7-year-old daughter, Sasha, stared at Lincoln’’s second inaugural address and said, Looks long.
She next asked her dad if his speech was going to be as long, to which her sister Malia, 10, replied, First African-American president, better be good.
Obama met the donors to thank them for their help in funding his historic five-day celebration, especially in such hard times, and also for their patience, as they had to wait in line in the cold. (ANI)
