The world deserves a break from Britney Spears' vagina, and what could possibly be more removed from that than a 2008 presidential candidate and a rapper?
Obama, now in the early stages of what will almost certainly be a bid for the 2008 Democratic ticket, met privately with rapper Ludacris on Wednesday in Chicago. Says Luda: "We talked about empowering the youth."
CNN amusingly points out that both have won Grammy awards: Obama for spoken-word readings from his memoir, Dreams from My Father (and you will be hearing a lot more about his father as his candidacy progresses), and Ludacris for his verse on "Yeah!".
Luda said meeting with Obama was like meeting with a relative. Obama declined to comment after the meeting.
I'd say this is evidence of Obama's early efforts to score the Black vote, but, um, yeah.
