Proving he can balance more than one thing at a time, President Obama visited the Pentagon and met with Defense Department leadership on Jan. 28, 2009.

“I want to…thank all of the men and women in uniform who are represented here. They are the best that this country has to offer. One of my duties as president is going to be to make sure that you have what you need to accomplish your missions.”  – President Barack Obama

This is part of a campaign promise to meet with military leaders about Iraq policy.  You can follow nearly 500 promises here.
