While in England, was Obama thinking about Puerto Rico?


Obama signs wrong year in the guestbook at Westminster Abbey

On a tour of Westminster Abbey in London, President Obama signed the guestbook, writing, “It is a great privilege to commemorate our common heritage, and common sacrifice.”
Then, he goofed. He added “24 May 2008.” It’s not clear if he was having more fun on May 24, 2011, that he had three years ago on the same date, when he was in Puerto Rico for one of the last Democratic primaries in his race against then-Sen. Hillary Clinton.
