BOSTON, Massachusetts (CNN) -–Barack Obama turned 47 on Monday but it’s just another four-state day on the campaign trail for the Illinois senator with a morning speech in Michigan followed by an afternoon fundraiser in Boston.
But he won’t be getting a present today.
On Sunday night, Obama’s trip director Marvin Nicholson was getting out of a yellow taxi at his hotel in Chicago with his laundry and Obama’s present in the trunk. As he was greeted by hotel staff, the cab driver drove away with both the clean clothes and the present still in the trunk. The gift, which the campaign won’t reveal, was from senior adviser Robert Gibbs, bodyman Reggie Love and Nicholson.
Nicholson has been calling Chicago taxi companies trying to track the present down. If it’s any consolation to Obama, Harry Connick Jr. will sing him ‘Happy Birthday’ at the fundraiser, the Boston Globe reports.
Obama celebrated the day with his wife and daughters at a barbecue with friends in the Chicago suburbs on Sunday, his first full day off the trail in weeks. And the crowds at Obama’s rallies have been singing him ‘Happy Birthday’ for the past several days.
The Illinois senator often jokes about his rapidly graying hair, telling Florida voters on Friday, “I’ve been getting gray since this campaign has started. When I started this campaign, everybody called me a young man. They’re not calling me that anymore.”
In the battleground state of Michigan on Monday, Obama told the crowd that he couldn’t think of a better place to spend his birthday than Lansing.
Happy B-Day President Obama

HAPPY BIRTH DAY TO THE MOST BELOVED
PRESIDENT(soon) THIS NATION HAS EVER HAD.
Wait! He's 47. Didn't Jesus die at 33...looks like that pokes a whole in the whole RNC's Messiah claim. Speaking of which...didn't W say that he was called by god to lead the free world...sound like a messiah claim to me.
Go Obama '08!!!!
Wiser with age? I am not sure that this pertains to this man! This man is a total idiot. You can already see this man flip flopping on issues and sides if you are following things closely. One more recent example of this would be that he is now wanting all delegates seated from FL. and MI. Hmm .... was afraid to have this done when Hillary was still in the race but now that he has the nomination he is all for it. You people need to wise up and realize that this is not the man we need for President nor is this an article that really needs to be posted. Who cares about his birthday!
Better an empty box, than an empty head, you peabrain.
I WISH YOU A HAPPY BIRTHDAY
AND ALL YOUR DAYS TO COME.
Who really cares that the biggest "Flip-Flopper" has a birthday. Let us get real about all of this. Our country is going further down the tubes and Obama unless he puts Clinton on the ticket, will end up losing the race.
Obama has changed his mind on so many things that it is pure stupid on how he is acting, Arrogant and stupid!
Happy Birthday Mr.President!
That's right and he will live in a White House.
Mr. President may you always be blessed,
dont worry about the haters and morons,
good always triumph over evil
Obama 08, 12
Whoop there he is......happy birthday, Senator.
Borack Obama. The Guy with a Hard-Drive for a Brain. Down[-Loads every other day, from his "Black-Mentor's".. They feed him, but the World has it's own way, of dealing with a Virus. Nature protects...
That should be fine with him since he doesn't give his daughers any presents on their B-Days.....
what a MORON.... GAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGg me
