When I was a kid, my hero was John F. Kennedy, and I told people that I wanted to be president of the United States when I grew up. Barack Obama is said to have had similar ambitions at a young age. Oh yes, and we are both big fans of Stevie Wonder. On the other hand, I have never been all that interested in basketball, although I did handle a case for Michael Jordan once. I guess I could also mention that Barack Obama shares his birthday with my sister.
