US-American politics in a nutshell

US-American politics in a nutshell, courtesy of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin:

When he met Obama, [Michael] Stautmanis [of The Barack Obama Foundation] confessed, “I thought he was an egghead.”

But then he saw Obama do a left-handed jump shot on the basketball court, Stautmanis said, and he realized the future president was not someone to be underestimated.

Reports that Ted Cruz suspended his campaign to become the Republican presidential nominee after Donald Trump burped his own name, on the other hand, could not be confirmed.
