In an article in the New York Times, it is revealed that Barack Obama's daughters received a shiny new Nintendo console when Santa Claus visited this year.
"Mr. Obama said he’d have his hands full attempting to rescue the American economy. But he has gotten in a little practice in bowling lately on the Nintendo Wii his daughters received for Christmas. Mr. Obama, who famously struggled in bowling during last year’s Democratic primaries, said he performs better in the video game."
