Obama Makes Kanye West Out of Himself Over Chicago Olympic Bid

Growing up, I was very involved in student politics, and even in high school I wouldn't have given the dorky speech President Obama gave to the IOC.

No one expects the Games to solve our collective challenges. But we do believe that in a world where we have too often witnessed the darker aspects of our humanity, peaceful competition between nations represents what is best about our humanity. It brings us together, if only for a few weeks, face to face. It helps us understand one another just a little better. It reminds us that no matter how or where we differ, we all seek our own measure of happiness, and fulfillment, and pride in what we do. And that is a very powerful starting point for progress.

Nearly one year ago, on a clear November night, people from every corner of the world gathered in the city of Chicago or in front of their televisions to watch the results of the U.S. Presidential election. Their interest wasn’t about me as an individual. Rather, it was rooted in the belief that America’s experiment in democracy still speaks to a set of universal aspirations and ideals. It sprung from the hope that in this ever-shrinking world, our diversity could be a source of strength and cause for celebration; and that with sustained work and determination, we could learn to live and prosper together during the fleeting moment we share on this Earth.

I though President Clinton could be pretty egotistical. Although I wasn't a fan of his politics, he at least seemed like he would be interesting to meet in person.

Obama, on the other hand, looks even more narcissistic than Clinton. Could someone, maybe the Oprah, tell Obama that not everything is about him?

This video from CNN showing the anchors shock that Chicago (culture of corruption anyone?) was eliminated from its Olympic Bid after the first round is pretty humorous too.
