President Barack Obama is heading home to Chicago to celebrate his 49th birthday on Wednesday.I WONDER WHICH OF OBAMA'S FRIENDS WILL BE BRINGING VERA BAKER AS "HIS" DATE?
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday that Obama's birthday plans include having dinner with friends there and spending the night in his own house in the city's Hyde Park neighborhood.
... Obama is traveling to Chicago Wednesday and Thursday to tour an auto plant and attend Democratic fundraisers, returning Thursday night to Washington.
He won't, however, be with his family, spending his birthday instead as a bachelor.
First lady Michelle Obama is taking their youngest daughter, Sasha, to Spain this week and their other daughter, Malia, is away at camp. Gibbs demurred when asked if it was a source of Obama family tension that the president was celebrating his birthday without them.
WILL TMZ PARK OUT FRONT TO GET PHOTOS OF ALL GUESTS?
I HOPE SO. STAY TUNED...
