At one of Obama's health care town halls, in Green Bay, Wisconsin, a man asking a question mentions that his ten-year-old daughter Kennedy has skipped the last day of school to attend the event.
"Do you need me to write a note?" the president asks, then pulls out a pen to write:
"Please excuse Kennedy's absence. She's with me. Barack Obama."
He steps down off the stage to deliver the note before continuing the town hall meeting.
THIS is the Obama who as the junior Senator from Illinois killed (twice) on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me.
