Evanston mom video chats with Obama
January 30, 2012 (EVANSTON, Ill.) (WLS) -- An Evanston mom got to ask President Obama a question during a video chat Monday.
Christine Wolf, who is currently writing a childrens book, asked "how can you talk to kids about the financial crisis?"
President Obama spoke with Wolf via Google's social networking site, Google Plus. The north suburban mother was one of the few people selected among thousands who submitted a question to the president.
Wolf says she was happy with the president's response.
"I give him a lot of credit for coming in without knowing any of the questions and for being so personable. I think it speaks to him as a person," said Wolf.
According to Google Plus, the site received more than 130,000 questions for the president.
