For Obama, 2008 forever?

When President Obama signed the guest book at Westminster Abbey today, he placed the date from before he was even president.

After inscribing the book with the words, "It is a great privilege to commemorate our common heritage, and common sacrifices," he and the first lady placed their signatures. And the president wrote dated his entry "24 May 2008" -- today's date, but only three years earlier.
