Like Ronald Reagan before him, Barack Obama has a not-so-unusual presidential hobby: He likes to doodle. Obama told WJLA's Scott Thuman about his habit in an interview in Virginia Beach. The president's habit isn't a complete surprise -- in 2007, he submitted a drawing to the National Doodle Day fundraising campaign. That doodle, created while he was presiding over the Senate, depicts Sens. Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein and Ted Kennedy. It sold for $2,075 on eBay. More from Politico’s 44 blog.
