“It’s true, Air Force One is on the list.”

President Barack Obama said so today at a White House Summit on Working Families, noting that people ask him what he likes best about the presidency.

“The Truman Balcony is a really nice view.”

“But one of the… best perks about president is that anyone will hand you their baby,” he said to laughter. “I get this baby fix like two or three times a week.”

“The reason it’s so powerful is because I remember taking the night shift when Malia was born and when Sasha was born, and being up at 2 in the morning, and changing diapers and burping them, and singing to them, and reading them stories — and watching SportsCenter once in a while, which I thought was good for their development.”

“It was.”
