So why did Sen. Barack Obama come to the back of the plane and join reporters on Monday?
Well, it was, in part, to thank NBC embed Mike Memoli for the cookies his mother had sent to Obama.
While home on Sunday, Memoli told his mother — famous at The Hotline (Memoli’s previous employer) for her cookies — that Monday was Obama’s birthday so she sent her son back on the trail with some homemade treats (she once gave Bill Clinton cookies, too).
Memoli gave them to the campaign (“If you can pass them on to him, it would make my mom happy,” Memoli told the campaign staffer) and, lo and behold, Obama joined reporters later to thank Memoli for the gift.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
