In an interview with Bob Herbert in Boston for his book, The Audacity of Hope, then-Senator Obama suggested Presidents' vacations and leisure should stop while in office. Ironic, considering his golfing and vacation schedule as President.

The Quote:
Barack Obama Essentially, the bargain that any president I think strikes with the American people is, um, you, you give me this office and in turn my, fears, doubts, insecurities, foibles, need for sleep, uh, family life, vacations, leisure is gone. I am giving myself to you and the American people should have no patience for whatever's going through your head because you've got a job to do.
