Barack Obama Reviews Restaurants

Back in 2001, Barack Obama appeared on "Check Please!" a round-table food show on Chicago's WJNO. The episode never aired, but is now being resurrected and is showing on January 16th.

Obama's bit on the show is split into the these two videos. As Gawker pointed out, Mr. President seems to misunderstand the idea of a round-table discussion, totally dominating the conversation. The other people on the show start to glaze over. Whatevers. He didn't miss his calling as a restaurant reviewer, but you've got to have a big ego to be President.
