I’m sure presidents get an exemption, but it sure would have been fun to see a teleprompter in the deliberation room:
Obama’s name has popped up on a list for jury duty at the southwest suburban courthouse in Bridgeview on Monday, but it’s a safe bet POTUS won’t show up ‘cuz he has . . .
. . . better things to do.
. . . the nation to worry about.
. . . the economy to fix.
. . . health-care bill to rework.
Now that they mention it, I think America would be better served if he’d go to jury duty instead.
Obama wouldn’t be able to serve on a jury in Chicago anyway — you’re not allowed to be on a jury if there’s a good chance you might be acquainted with the defendant(s).
