There's a new race in town and it isn't for political office.
President Obama's Facebook page is running neck and neck with Lady Gaga's to become the first page (belonging to a living person) to reach 10 million fans.

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that the top celebrity page belongs to Michael Jackson with more than 13 million fans. Friday, June 25th marks the one year anniversary of his death.
