    President Obama signed the bipartisan farm bill Friday, saying it will promote agriculture, provide more money for research into the environment and energy, and feed hungry Americans through the food stamp program. Obama also compared the bill to baseball star Mike Trout, saying both can do a little bit of everything. The five-year bill -- approved by Congress this week after years of fierce debate -- expands federal crop insurance.
