News about Pres. Obama's practices and policies dominated the top ten most-read stories on CNSNews.com in 2011...and provided some valuable lessons.

Starting at the top (the most-read story of the year), here are the ten most popular CNSNews.com stories of last year, and a lesson you might take away from each of them:
