Why does the White House seek out interviews with local television affiliates? Maybe it's because they ask questions like these:
"Mr. President, we've heard you sing, we've seen you do stand up at the correspondents dinner." Tom Wills of WJXT in Jacksonville, Fla. stated.
"I was just wondering if you would give any thought to being on 'American Idol' or 'America's Got Talent'?" he asked. "You'd be a big hit Mr. President."
"My wife and my daughters find me embarrassing enough when I start performing," Obama grinned. "They certainly don't want a large national audience seeing me in those kinds of situations. So I'm going to try to keep my singing to the shower most of the time."
