Obama whines to Hearst Magazine about the burdens of life in the White House:
The president said he loves his life in the White House but doesn't enjoy some of the ways of Washington, such as the "kabuki dance" among political partisans before serious policy discussions begin. He also regrets his loss of personal privacy.
"I just miss - I miss being anonymous," he said at the meeting in the White House.
Millions of others share the wish that he was stilll anonymous.
