DAYTON, OHIO — At the beginning of his remarks on education just now, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., joked about taking his daughters to the first day of school yesterday. Talking to the teacher of his oldest daughter, Malia, he asked what happens in 5th grade.

"Boys," the teacher said.

Obama joked that wasn’t the answer her was looking for. But he explained that "one of the benefits of running for president is we have Secret Service around here at all times. And they have guns at all times."
