“Has food – especially junk food – played as large a role in the messaging of any other presidential administration as it has in that of President Obama?Obama has long complained about feeling hemmed in by the presidency, and has made a habit lately of escaping the White House by walking down the street, skipping town and meeting with regular Americans who have written him letters or have some connection to an issue he plans to discuss.
