Americans have come up with the perfect Mother's Day present President Obama can give his wife Michelle: Stop smoking. A smoker for some 30 years who's under his doctor's orders to give up the dirty habit, he now faces the pressure of a large majority of Americans who want him to quit. [See photos of Michelle Obama.]
In the latest Washington Whispers poll, 60 percent said the best deed he could do on Mother's Day would be to throw his cigarettes away. And according to our pollster, Synovate e-Nation, the numbers were even higher among women, Americans 55 and over, and middle-income workers.
