In a guestbook at the Westminster Abbey in London, President Obama wrote a lovely sentiment -- and then signed the date: 24 May 2008. The format (day, then month) is standard in Europe, but the date is three years off. Perhaps the President was thinking about more wistful times?
- To what extent should this error reflect on the President? A post on New York Magazine's website reads, "President Obama Has No Idea What Year It Is." What do you think of the criticism?
