    President Obama's uncle has reportedly been granted a hardship driver's license by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles just a week after he lost the right to drive for 45 days in a deal in a drunken driving case.

    The license granted Monday allows 67-year-old Onyango Obama to drive from noon to midnight to get to work as manager of a Framingham liquor store.

    Obama convinced a hearing officer that the inability to drive would pose a hardship on his job working for Conti Liquors, the Boston Herald reported.

    Registry spokeswoman Sara Lavoie told the newspaper that Obama "met all of the criteria" to qualify for the hardship license, including a letter from his employer and proof he was enrolled in an alcohol treatment program.

    Obama is the half brother of the president's late father. He was arrested in Framingham in August after a police officer said he made a rolling stop at a stop sign and nearly caused the officer's cruiser to crash into Obama's sport utility vehicle. Police said Obama registered 0.14 on a blood-alcohol test, above the state's legal limit of 0.08.

    At a hearing last week, Obama did not plead guilty but acknowledged Massachusetts prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him.

    A judge continued the case for one year without a finding, meaning that if he does not get arrested during that time, the charge will be dismissed. A judge also ordered him to attend a driver alcohol education program.

    Onyango Obama, who is from Kenya, is also appealing a deportation order that dates to 1992, when he failed to renew his application to remain in the U.S.

    Twenty years, and still no deportation order. What's up with that?

    Too bad nobody will put those two things together as a good reason to deport him.

    Too many low friends in high places.
