The U.S election is getting serious now. Weeks of campaigning, fundraising, polling, imploring and debating culminate tonight, as the votes come in. But, in the charismatic style that helped him win his first term, Obama spoke positively of his ability to dance Korean rapper Psy’s Gangnam style.
During an Election Day interview with New Hampshire radio station WZID-FM, questions on Mitt Romney and his thoughts on a second term were put aside as he was questioned on the Korean’s viral style, which has now amassed a gigantic 660 million hits on YouTube. "I just saw that video for the first time, and I think I can do that move," said Obama, and then when asked if he could replicate the moves, he said "I'm not sure that the inauguration ball is the appropriate time to break that out," but, then playfully suggested an alternative. "You know, maybe do it privately for Michelle."
Obama stays close to the stars, and that’s another reason for his success in gaining the presidency. Unfortunately, the presidential race is largely predicated by the personality of those involved. And Obama’s close friendship with people like Jay-Z and Beyonce, the latter writing an open letter of support for him today, and the former performing to boost votes, will only help him as he battles Romney for the White House tonight.
