Hangin' With Obama
Suffice it to say, this has not been a great week for boosting the public's opinion of politicians.
If it's not one "straight" senator's appeal getting turned down for pleading guilty to soliciting gay sex in a Minneapolis airport men's bathroom ("wide-stance" Larry Craig), it's another state representative losing their conviction appeal for offering an undercover male cop $20 and a little oral pleasure (“Twenty Dollar” Bob Allen), and a corrupt governor ("Hot Rod" Blagojevich) so drunk with power he jokes about the feds wire-tapping him the day before he's busted running the state like some crazed, thickly-coiffed mafioso.
Which is why it is so refreshing to see not just any politician, but Barack Obama himself, offering viewers a candid glimpse into the life of the president-elect.
Even if it's not real.
