Socks wins Cat of the Day posthumously

Socks, the White House cat during the Clinton years, has died at the age of 18. Associated Press has an obituary:

Things took a turn for the worse in late 1997, when then-puppy Buddy, a chocolate retriever, arrived. Relations between Socks and Buddy were cool from the beginning.

"I'm trying to work that out," Clinton joked at the time. "It's going to take a while. It's kind of like peace in Ireland or the Middle East."
