Reporter's Note: President Obama, like me, is the father of two girls.
Dear Mr. President,
One thing I have noticed about every president is that it is virtually impossible for them to admit any doubt. I understand that maybe you all feel as if you have no choice - as if the nation does not want, nor can it tolerate a leader who seems unsure. That’s a shame. I think the smartest, best people I know are full of doubt and every day it makes them stronger.
