His people recently told Golf Digest that his handicap is 16, which is pretty good, although they didn’t give a decimal point for it (e.g., 16.3), which is how you know somebody has an actual handicap rather than is just making up a rough estimate.

When the primaries are over and he’s pivoting toward the center, expect to hear more about how Obama doesn’t drive a Prius, he drives a huge V-8 American-made Chrysler 300.
