This is the headline of a recent AOL news story. It should not come as a surprise that this down-to-earth President-Elect is going to remain in touch with his roots. Chicago became his home after finishing school on the east coast. Yes, his mansion is 1.6 million dollars, but it is hardly a ranch in Crawford, Texas, a seaside villa in Kennebunkport, Maine or even a governor's mansion in Arkansas.
The Obamas will continue to be what we have come to love about them - in touch with regular people, their wealth notwithstanding - after all, they barely paid off their student loans a few years ago (that was surely before the rousingly successful books penned by then Senator Obama - Dreams from my Father and The Audacity of Hope).
Here is the link to the story - it is worth reading. http://news.aol.com/article/on-breaks-obama-will-return-home-to-city/276990
God bless the Obamas and may they continue to keep in touch and keep it real.
