Presidential Candidates: They’re Just Like Us!

I don’t know which magazine it is, it might be inTouch, People, OK! or some silly, sugar-bloated, plastic-encased, time-wasting (yet strangley entertaining) celebrity magazine that has a section called “They’re Just Like Us!” or something to that affect. Any ways, I ran across a fun little article about the potential presidential candidates, John McCain and Barack Obama, and their latest interactions, likes and dislikes with things of the pop culture realm. I decided to do a “They’re Just Like Us!: Presidential Edition.”

Just a couple normal guys. That’s all.

In an article by Jake Tapper, a senior national correspondant with ABC News, conducted a candid interview of the presidential hopefuls and their likes and dislikes of a few things of the pop culture world.

Last Movie You Saw:

McCain: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls. “I enjoyed that so much. The old guy wins”

Obama: Shrek 3

Favorite Superhero:

McCain: Batman. “He does justice sometimes against insurmountable odds,” McCain says. “And he doesn’t make his good works known to a lot of people, so a lot of people think he’s just a rich playboy.”

Obama: Spiderman and Batman (and dislikes Superman). “The guys who have too many powers, like Superman, that always made me think they weren’t really earning their superhero status.  It’s a little too easy.  Whereas Spider-Man and Batman, they have some inner turmoil.  They get knocked around a little bit.”

First Movie You Saw:

McCain: Bambi. “When his mother was killed,” McCain admits. “Oh, yeah, I cried.”

Obama: Born Free. “I remember that movie having an impact on me,” Obama says. “I think I may have teared up at the end when they release [the lioness] Elsa. I couldn’t have been more than 4 or 5, but I remember choking up on that.”

Favorite Movies/TV Shows

McCain: Movies: Born of the Fourth of July, We Were Soldiers, Full Metal Jacket, Apocolypse Now. (TV SHOWS): Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dexter, Seinfeld.

Obama: M*A*S*H, The Dick Van Dyke Show

Favorite Tunes or On Your iPod:

McCain: ABBA, Roy Orbison, Linda Ronstadt, Usher. “I was on Saturday Night Live with him, got to see him perform, and I was very impressed with him.”

Obama: Frank Sinatra, Sheryl Crow, John Coltrane, Bob Dylan, Javanese flute music, African dance music, a lot of R&B.
