Several US presidents of the last century were notorious smokers who lit up constantly in the White House even while regulating tobacco themselves. As the legendary story reveals John F. Kennedy gave orders to Press Secretary Pierre Salinger to round up as many Corona cigars before signing the Cuban trade embargo. Salinger later reported 1,200 Coronas in his possession.
It was not until the Clinton administration when an absolute no-smoking policy was implemented in the White House and Hillary happily removed all the ashtrays from the premises. So where might Barack Obama sneak a smoke?
