Super Tuesday: Obama on KFOG, candidate bloopers

Times features writer and Aparently Speaking blogger Ann Tatko mentioned that she’d heard Barack Obama on the KFOG Morning Show, so I went over and found the MP3 clip they posted.

Hosts asked him about his gains in the state polls in recent weeks, his initial decision to run, the reaction in the African-American community to his candidacy, last night’s Grateful Dead member reunion on his behalf at the Warfield in San Francisco (rebroadcast at iclips.net at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. today), the Will.i.am and Jesse Dylan “Yes We Can” video, his decision to quit smoking and more. Give it a listen! (MP3)

And Times staff writer Ryan Huff noticed this CBS News video collecting some campaign-trail bloopers and “lighter” moments. It’s quick and silly and it’ll take your mind off your troubles.

Heck, it might even help you remember that there are human beings running, not just walking-and-talking collections of stances on the issues.
