    PARIS – Could France elect Barack Obama president? Not really — but that’s not stopping the organizers of Obama17, a guerrilla campaign trying to entice the former U.S. president to head to Paris. “It’s totally crazy, but the cool thing is that once you get past that, you start thinking that maybe it’s possible. Who cares that he’s not French? He’s Barack Obama,” one of the campaign organizers told CNN. Oui on peut … (?) #obama2017 #streetsofparis pic.twitter.com/v6ptl9DSJB — Romuald […]

    By Megan Carpentier On Friday morning, a bearded college student from Florida slid down a ballroom wall at the Gaylord National Resort, just south of Washington, D.C., while ignoring Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs’ speech. “Bro, I got the spins, I gotta sit down,” he told his pal.
