He’s so – him! Plus: Now I know who Charles Hamilton Houston was. Win!

    This is great! And it made me go back and check, and yes, I wrote part of my Professional Responsibility Exam in law school about Houston! Barack and I are twins! (well, not really….)

    • I’m twins with Michelle, because we’re the same age and both grew up in Chicago (-ish). So you can TOTALLY be twins with Barack.
