The Washington Post:
U.S. President Barack Obama is in overall “excellent health” but still struggles with a smoking habit, his doctors said in a report after Obama had a routine medical exam on Sunday.
Obama, 48, visited the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland for a 90-minute checkup, his first since taking office just over a year ago.
A team of doctors led by Dr. Jeffrey Kuhlman, the chief White House physician, found Obama to be “fit for duty” and said he was likely to remain so for the rest of his presidency.
