Obama’s Ring

As the 2012 campaign gets underway, the news media is spending time examining the personal lives of the Republican candidates. The average voter probably can not describe any of Newt Gingrich’s positions, but almost certainly, that voter knows that Newt has been married three times.

What about President Obama? His campaign has represented that he has only been married once, but there are photos of the President from 1980 wearing a ring on the ring finger of left hand where he now wears his wedding band. I’m not aware of any official published explanation of that ring.

Perhaps, like his father, he has a “traditional” wife in Kenya. Who knows, the news media won’t ask.
