Happy Birthday, Mr. President

Posted on August 4, 2014 11:00 am

Some of you may be too young to remember when Marilyn Monroe sang “Happy Birthday” to President Kennedy in 1962. Heck, most of you are too young to remember it.

Well, today is the birthday of our 44th president. There is no Marilyn Monroe around to sing to him, but that doesn’t mean Barack Obama shouldn’t get a song. And that’s your task today. (Nobody told you there would be an assignment? You should always be ready for a surprise assignment!)

Who should sing to Barack Obama? And what should they sing?
