President Barack Obama is looking to the life of Ronald Reagan for his vacation reading this Christmas. The White House announced that Obama will be reading Lou Cannon's "President Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime" while he vacations with his family in Hawaii. Recently, Obama was reading a history of the Clinton years by Taylor Branch. Obama arrived in Hawaii late Wednesday and will stay there through the New Year.
