What do you get for that leader of the free world who has everything? Apparently a weekend at Camp David and a round of golf with old friends will do it, reports the AP on the occasion of President Obama's 52nd birthday today. The White House is staying pretty tightlipped on any other plans, and Obama is due back in Washington this afternoon anyway. Politico has a gallery of Obama's birthdays past here, while if you truly have entirely too much time to burn, the White House offers up its 52 favorite photos from the president's past year. Or there's always this. (More President Obama stories.)
