At the White House today, President Obama gave one lucky turkey a second chance at life, saving it from ending up as Thanksgiving dinner.
Obama issued a presidential pardon to Courage, a 20-week-old, 45-pound turkey from Princeton, N.C .
The president, joined by daughters Sasha and Malia at his side, told a crowd of invited guests at the White House this morning that some presidents actually ate their turkeys.
"You can't fault them for that. It's a good lookin' bird," Obama said.
