The 2008 Presidential Election is considered — by many —  to be one of the most historical in all of American history. So when I read that 6-year-old Anna Matsui (who was an elf at Sunday’s Christmas in Washington) had no idea who the President was, my heart fluttered and I proceeded to let out a giant “awwwwwww!!!!”

Yeah … he won a Nobel Peace Prize. Sure … he’s inspired millions. But there’s just something so sweet and so innocent about a little girl introducing herself to the most powerful man in the country only to say, “I’ve never seen you before!”

At least Obama chuckled along with her and said, “I’ve never seen YOU before!”

Way to go Anna! You should get huge karma points for being so kind to a complete stranger!
