Obama to Rolling Stone on Al Green moment: ‘I can sing'

Obama, who often notes in his campaign rallies that his job has put more gray in his hair, told Rolling Stone that "my skin is even thicker" than it was in January 2009 as a result of the criticism he has faced.

"You don't take it personally—you just recognize that it goes with the office and the desk and Marine One and all the other aspects of being president," he said.
