Obama's a last-minute shopper too!

Obama's a last-minute shopper too!

Even presidents make last-minute shopping trips.

President Obama, bogged down in payroll tax negotiations, took time out from his schedule Wednesday and hit up a shopping center in Alexandria, Virginia, CNN’s The 1600 Report says.

The president, who took along first dog Bo, made stops at PetSmart, a pizzeria and a Best Buy.

So what can Malia and Sasha expect under the tree this year? The video game "Just Dance 3," for one thing. (Hope you’re not reading this girls!)

"The girls beat me every time on these dance games," the president said at Best Buy. "But you'll never get a picture of me (playing) because I get graded F every time."

Always the comedian, Obama took out his credit card at the store and said, "Let's see if my credit card still works."

The total cost for the day out? Nearly $300, according to the blog.
