HOH’s One-Minute Recess: Obama Inks Shaheen’s Boo-Boo

Nursing an injury worked out for Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), who wound up getting a little extra TLC from President Barack Obama on Monday night during the annual White House Christmas ball.

Turns out Shaheen had a bit of a slip and fall in the Capitol last week and broke her left wrist in the process. The spill left the lawmaker shaken, but not stirred, as she returned to work unfazed the following day.

But the plaster-wrapped appendage decorated green, not for the holidays but to match Shaheens campaign colors (way to stay on message, Senator!) caught the first familys eye. POTUS gladly signed the cast and added an inspirational Be well! to the wound, while FLOTUS offered her condolences.

Now that shes snagged the big bosss John Hancock, an aide suggested that Shaheen would undoubtedly offer up the busted paw to any fellow lawmakers who wish to follow suit.
