Me, too!  I only know the rhyme of O.K. with a vague "radio cowboy"
connotation (dokey = doggie??)  Also a Yankee boy ... of 67 yrs.

*Which "okey-dokey" sense do you mean here? Like Amy, I've never heard of
sense used by Obama. But then again, I'm just a Yankee boy and it might not
have made it up here except to mean "OK."
