According to, 10-year old Kennedy Corpus of Wisconsin had a pretty good excuse for missing the last day of school yesterday, and she got a note from the President to prove it.


Kennedy and her father John Corpus attended a town hall meeting with President Barack Obama on Thursday in Green Bay, Wisconsin, in which the President talked about his health care agenda.
