President Barack Obama’s White House Internet town hall meeting yesterday wasn’t all business: he also discussed his soft spot for nurses, People reports. During his response to a health policy question, the president remembered the care given to daughter Sasha during her hospitalization with life-threatening meningitis at age 3 months. “I’m biased toward nurses. I just like nurses,” he said.
“The doctors did a terrific job,” he continued. “But frankly it was the nurses that were there with us when she had to get a spinal tap, and all sorts of things that were just bringing me to tears.”
