Washington - President Obama is wrestling with whether or not to allow fist bumping in the Whitehouse. The subject is high on the president's agenda for his first 100 days.
"Point being I am not against fist bumping per se, the question is whether or not it is done for purely joyful, frivolous reasons or to celebrate an event well done."
"The fact of whether or not it is hip or cool, black or white, gay or straight, Muslim or Christian does not enter into the equation for someone who was born to a poor mixed-race family but now holds himself responsible to the greatest power in the free world, my wife Michelle."
"Michelle and I often disagree and this is one of those times. I am all for fist bumping and will go so far as to say I am for the more current variation, the fist bump explosion as well, which I learned from Randy Jackson from American Idol."
"Michelle sees the whole thing as a childish way for grown men and women to express their true feelings."
"She doesn't like it when I give her a noogie either."
