Change doesn't take a day off -- even on birthdays. President Barack Obama Tuesday will
celebrate his 48th birthday surrounded by all 58 Democratic senators in a meeting slated to
address crucial issues the county faces, such as the economy, health care and energy
The 44th US president will likely have a much more relaxing birthday than last year, when he
was zigzagging the country on the campaign trail.
Other interesting tidbits regarding the day the first black US president was born: Bobby Lewis'
Tossin' and Turning' was atop the music charts, and then-US President John F. Kennedy was in
the midst of his first year in the Oval Office.
