PRESIDENT OBAMA CELEBRATES 50th BIRTHDAY AT THE WHITE HOUSE: President Obama celebrated the big 5-0 at the White House yesterday evening with family and close friends, including daughter Malia who came home from summer camp for the day. 

Although he stayed in and kept a low profile yesterday, Wednesday was a full day of birthday-themed fundraisers for the POTUS, including one in which Jennifer Hudson serenaded him with "Happy Birthday."

It may not have been as memorable as Marilyn Monroe’s serenade to John F. Kennedy in 1962, but the president seemed to enjoy it.
