Fatherhood

The verdict may still be out on how great a president Barack Obama has been, but his deep devotion to Malia and Sasha is unquestionable. "The time goes by so quick," he said of fatherhood in a recent interview. "Understand that there's nothing that's going to be more precious in your life, And when you're on your death bed, that's the stuff you're going to remember — you holding hands with your daughter." Here other leaders share their views on fatherhood as sons and as dads. The consensus is that despite their enormous individual accomplishments, there's no better job in the world.  —Joyce Jones (@BETpolitichick)
