Interviews

Obama Explains It All

President Obama is talking about, well, just about everything with the Associated Press today. In the wide-ranging interview, Obama addresses the economy, terror detentions, Michael Jackson (“I grew up on his music”), and basketball (“Kobe’s terrific … But I haven’t seen anybody match up with Michael [Jordan]”). Obama also said that the United States is trying to “keep a door open” for North Korea to return to international nuclear disarmament talks; that Putin “still has sway” in Russia; and that Iran must be prevented from getting nuclear weapons.
