Need a home? Ask Obama


Henrietta Hughes, the homeless Florida woman who asked President Obama for help at a town hall meeting on the economic stimulus plan, is moving out of her pickup truck and into the home of a state representative.

Earlier this week, Chene Thompson, the wife of Florida state Rep. Nick Thompson, offered to let Hughes and her adult son live in a house she owns in LaBelle, Fla. Hughes, who is on disability for cancer, was facing a two-year waiting list at her local housing department.

During a Q&A after Obama's speech in Ft. Myers on Monday, Hughes told the president she needed "something more than the vehicle and the parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom. Please help."
