President Barack Obama will be the first former president to stick around D.C.  since Woodrow Wilson. Wilson retired from the White House with his wife, Edith Wilson, to 2340 S St., NW, in the Embassy Row neighborhood.  

Wilson lived there until his death in 1924. Edith lived there nearly four more decades until she died in 1961, when she gave the home to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. And, Embassy Row, off of Massachusetts Avenue, could very well be where the Obamas decide to live.

For the Obama family, Friday’s Fourth of July celebrations will also mark another milestone — Malia Obama’s sweet 16 birthday.  

President Barack Obama made note Tuesday during a speech in Washington of Malia’s upcoming Independence Day birthday, with the president showing some apprehension as Malia begins to inch toward adulthood.
