In his latest column over at ComicMix, Michael Davis says presidential hopeful Barack Obama may be in San Diego this summer for the con:
Before I give my endorsement (which will surely decide the nominee as I carry so much weight) let me share a bit about each candidate. There is a real chance that Barack Obama will come to Comic Con International this summer. His campaign contacted me last year about setting that up and it still may happen.
Why me? Let’s just say that’s how I roll.
I like Obama but did not know if I was ready to vote for him. I was very impressed that his campaign thinks that Comic Con is a smart place to reach young people. That move earned him serious points in my book.
San Diego’s got just about everything else already, so why not politics? Although you have to wonder what kind of nightmare it would be for the secret service, trying to protect him at a place with so many costumed folks walking around.
