Back from Asia, Obama Goes on Dad Duty

Fresh from his weeklong trip through Asia, President Barack Obama is taking time to catch up on dad duty.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama stopped by 8-year-old daughter Sasha's school Friday morning. White House officials said they were visiting Sidwell Friends School in Bethesda, Maryland, for a school activity, but declined to elaborate.

Although Obama has no public events planned Friday, it's a busy time for him. The Senate is set for a make-or-break vote Saturday on one of Obama's signature issues - overhauling the health care system. And Obama is moving closer to his long-awaited decision on strategy for the war in Afghanistan.
