Last night President Obama did a White House first by hosting a Passover Seder dinner for the Jewish holiday. Isn’t it crazy to think that no President before him had ever done such a thing? Clinton didn’t. Neither Bush did. Obama was the FIRST. However, two of Obama’s highest profile Jewish staffers didn’t attend the Seder: Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Strategist David Axelrod. Anyway, that’s still pretty cool that Obama did that. He has been really goingo ut of his way to open up the White House to people of all backgrounds. It is also somewhat ironic that Obama was once accused of being a secret Muslim, and now he’s hosting a Jewish dinner. Let’s see what the Republicans say about him now. Keep it up, Barack. Shabbat Shalom!
