❤️ Stairway to Heaven: President Obama talks with Led Zeppelin during intermission at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. What a thrill to see Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones after blasting their music as a teenager (when no one else was home).
It's always polite to look someone in the eyes during conversation.
Consoler-in-chief. Always had tears in my eyes when President Obama comforted families after a national tragedy. (Joplin, Missouri after a devastating tornado)
