Obama comes from the left ... literally

Even today, lefties can feel like they're at a physical disadvantage, said Sharlene McEvoy, a left-hander and professor of business law at Fairfield University's Dolan School of Business in Fairfield. McEvoy used to oversee Sinistral Sig, an offshoot of the high intelligence society Mensa geared specifically toward lefties.

She said the world - and many commonly used items, like scissors, utensils and even school desks - are designed for right-handed people and can be tough for lefties to manage.
