One sunny day in January, 2013 an old man approached the White House
from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park
bench. He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would
like to go in and meet with President Obama."

The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer
President and no longer resides here." The old man said, "Okay", and
walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to
the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."
The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is
no longer president and no longer resides here." The man thanked him
and, again, just walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the
very same U.S. Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with
President Obama." The Marine, understandably agitated at this point,
looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you
have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I've told you already that
Mr. Obama is no longer the president and no longer resides here. Don't
you understand?"

The old man looked at the Marine and said...."Oh, I understand. I just
love hearing it."

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow,
Sir."
