President Obama talked education with 11-year-old reported Damon Weaver, who's been trying to land an interview with Obama since the campaign. He got a sit-down with the president in the Diplomatic Room of the White House yesterday.
As the nation is predominantly focused on health care, the interview delves into a topic that isn't getting talked about much right now. But it's an important one to Obama, the third of his three domestic policy agendas, so we'll probably start to hear a lot about it next year. Obama will deliver a speech on education Sept. 8.
Hands down the best part of the interview: "I suggest that we have french fries and mangoes every day for lunch," Weaver tells Obama. Sounds pretty good (though, do they go together?), but Obama doesn't think they're healthy enough.
