Get Obama to the Greek! Santa Monica High School Seniors’ YouTube Plea to the President: Attend Our Graduation


The 100th graduating class of Santa Monica High School has just launched a presidential campaign—a campaign, that is, to get President Barack Obama to attend their commencement ceremony this weekend. In the video below, posted at YouTube, senior students plead with Obama, who happens to be scheduled to be in Los Angeles on Friday, to make an appearance at the event, which will take place at the Greek Theater Friday night, and point to the school’s recent accomplishments. Is the video as slick as the locally-produced Kate Upton Will You Go To Prom With Me? No. Do we think it has a better chance of working? With no comment from the White House—yet—why not?
