Picture of the Day: Obama Celebrates 50th Birthday With Burgers

President Obama likes burgers as much as the next guy. Since his inauguration, he's taken Russian President Dmitri Medvedev to Ray's Hell Burger in Arlington, Va., gone for Tuesday-afternoon burgers with Vice President Biden, and visited Five Guys with NBC's Brian Williams.

So it's not surprising that Obama chose burgers for a birthday lunch. The president turns 50 today, and, as a pre-celebration on Wednesday, he trekked to Capitol Hill with advisers in tow for burgers at Good Stuff Eatery. The presidential entourage seemingly failed to impress the girl in yellow, who remained transfixed by her cell phone as she sat just a few feet from the leader of the free world.
