If I want to mail something to President Obama and make sure he gets it, or give it the best chance of being received. Where should I send it? What is the best address with highest likelihood of being given to him?

The best address (and the only one) is the White House. Obama reportedly reads 10 letters per day. The other choice is to send an email.
