He was asked about it…
Apparently someone considers the ability to mediate between feuding reality show hosts an essential presidential skill, because Barack Obama was asked about just such a topic. TMZ reports that Obama appeared on Michael Yo's radio show and got asked about the battle between American Idol hosts Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.
Obama said, "I think that they are going to be able to sort it out. I am confident…I'm all about bringing people together, working for the same cause. I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they're moving forward and not going backwards."
When asked who he preferred, Obama said, "Mariah. She's actually done some events for us. I've gotten to know her and Nick [Cannon]. She's a wonderful lady…Nicki, I don't know, but I've got her on my iPod."
