Squeezing some family fun between campaign stops, Sen. Barack Obama kicks a soccer ball to his 10-year-old daughter Malia and, with a wink to a reporter on the sidelines, confides one of his wife Michelle's secret talents: "She is the best Hula-Hooper I know. Once she gets the rhythm going, she can drop to her knees!"Howie P.S.: This came out last week, but I just saw it yesterday at the grocery store checkout. Ben Smith points to "Bonnie Fuller on Team Obama's Tabloid Strategy" for the story behind the curtains.
And what about the Democratic presidential nominee? "That is one thing you will never see – me Hula-Hooping. I think that's clear."
Barack: And if I ever thought that it was ruining my family, I wouldn't do it.
Michelle: We're constantly balancing each other. I know that if I were to say, "I can't take this," it would be over.
