Obama & Thomas in Natal Blowout

President Barack Obama, who shares a birthday with Hearst Newspapers Columnist and former UPI icon Helen Thomas, took time off yesterday from affairs of state for a surprise joint celebration of the event.

President Obama, 48, brought a plate of cupcakes to White House Correspondent Thomas, 89, and led a chorus of reporters in the White House briefing room in a Happy Birthday serenade to Thomas as she blew out a candle on a cupcake.

President Obama's gift wish list doubtless includes immediate comprehensive health care reform legislation, and one imagines Thomas' calls for immediate health care, though all the correspondent who has everything asked for was world peace.

  1. Only eighty-nine? I've got a picture of Helen Thomas and Pres. WIlliam Howard Taft in the White House bathtub. (That's how he got stuck!)
