Barack Obama on Letterman 04/09/2007
You know what I liked most about this interview? When Barack put the politics aside and talked about his struggle to quit smoking. I think he should do more of that.
When you share your flaws, you connect with people. It can make the average person sit up, take notice, and say, ya know, I've got that problem, too.
And, like Letterman jokingly said, it would be kinda cool to have a President that smoked.
Okay, okay, before anyone bites my head off -- I know that smoking is bad for you. I'm just saying that nobody's perfect, and he could use that to his advantage. He'd get the smoker's vote, for sure.
