LOL: President Obama And His Lightsaber

President Obama was photographed swinging a Star Wars lightsaber toy around during an announcement of Chicago's bid for the 2016 Olympic Games. I'm not exactly sure what the Olympics has to do with lightsabers (apparently something to do with fencing), but I thought the photo was interesting enough to pass along. And how cool is it that the President of the United States is a Jedi? ... or is he a Sith?
