Back In The Day When He Was A Teenager...
Political blogger Ezra Klein writes the following awesome paragraph:
There are things in this world that are true. There are things in this world that are not true. And there are things in this world that appear to be true, but would be so awesome that were they allowed to manifest, reality would collapse in on itself. This is in that third category.
What is he referring to? A blurb in the Guardian about Barack Obama and rapper Q-Tip:
The candidate said he thought rap music was also helping to break down barriers within the music world. Indeed it was reported last month that Obama will make a cameo performance on the rap singer Q-Tip's next album.
Politically, I'm not so sure it's as awesome an idea, but generally speaking this would take Bill Clinton's sax playing on MTV and completely usurp it as the hippest thing a Presidential candidate has ever done, I'd have to guess. (Acknowledging, of course, that the 'Hip Presidential' playing field is an extremely small one.)
