White House Poetry Jam!

I've long been an Obama supporter, but now I have one other thing to add to the list of things I respect about our 44th president. On last night; May 12th, 2009 President and First Lady Barack Obama hosted the White House first ever "Poetry Jam". Musicians, poets, and artists gathered along with 200 invited guests into the East room of the White House to partake in an event that President Obama dubbed as "a chance to highlight the importance of the arts...the power of words and music." HBO will be airing the event, however the show times are not available at this time, I'll let you know when you should set your dvr's and tivo!
