The birthday boy for August 4 is Barack Obama.
The United States of America has elected a Leo President only three times. The other two Leos who ascended to the Oval Office are Benjamin Harrison and Bill Clinton.
Leos, of course, have leadership qualities to spare, but they can be a little too eager to be liked to succeed in a postion of such power. Frankly, they can be magnanimous when being an arrogant jerk would probably get them a little further ahead. I suppose Obama could learn a little about being loathed from a Capricorn like Richard Nixon. He’s got a Capricorn wife, though, so maybe she could teach him a few tricks.
