It's another first for the Obama presidency: Today at the White House, President Obama will pardon a turkey, an annual Thanksgiving tradition. The event will take place in the Rose Garden, site of many other critically important policy announcements. The lucky gobbler is named Courage, and he's a 20-week-old, 40-pound turkey from Princeton, N.C. It's safe to say that the staff in the press office at the White House is getting very creative.
