Following a campaign speech in Woodbridge, Virginia, President Barack Obama called into the EZ Street Show on Friday afternoon to talk about voting, DC Sports,Jay-Z and if we will ever see Michelle Obama run for office.
President Obama, of course, opened up the conversation to talk about why voter registration and voter turn-out is important, especially in a very important swing state like Virginia. He urged our listeners to register to vote before their state’s respective deadline.

Obama also talked DC sports. He shared his thoughts on the Washington Nationals‘ World Series chances and what he thinks about Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Jay-Z and Beyonce recently held a fundraiser for Obama’s re-election campaign. The president talked about what he and Jay-Z have in common, and if his wife and Hillary Clinton have anything in common when it comes to White House ambitions.
