Wisconsin man's cheesehead hat reluctantly let into Obama speech, gets president's signature

Liberian immigrant Mansfield Neblett just wanted to wear his big yellow triangular "cheesehead" hat to President Barack Obama's speech at a middle school in Wisconsin, the self-proclaimed "dairy state.'
The first roadblock were U.S. Secret Service agents. They initially told him the bright yellow hat in the shape of a slice of cheese usually worn by fans at Green Bay Packers games was a security risk. The 46-year-old Neblett told them he'd skip the Wednesday speech.
