"Being a good parent - whether you're gay or straight; a foster parent or a grandparent - isn't easy. It demands your constant attention, frequent sacrifice, and a healthy dose of patience. And nobody's perfect. To this day, I'm still figuring out how to be a better husband to my wife and father to my kids...

[If] we can do our best to be a source of comfort and encouragement to our kids; if we can show them unconditional love and help them grow into the people they were meant to be; then we will have succeeded.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, and have a great weekend."

-- President Barack Obama, speaking about fatherhood yesterday in his weekly address to the nation.
