There are certain accomplishments that make you qualified to influence other people’s lives. If you’re traveled to outer space, I’d like to hear what you have to say about life, politics, and any other subject for that matter. If you’ve been on Real World: Albuquerque, I’m not quite as interested in listening to you speak.

But I’d put athletes who win gold medals for our wonderful country right up there next to going to the moon. Thus, if I were in Cleveland this Wednesday, I’d love to go to the Quicken Loans Arena where LeBron James and Jay-Z are co-hosting a rally for Barack Obama.

LeBron tossed $20 K to Obama’s campaign a little while back, and is taking his influence to the next level by getting his boy Jay to perform at the Q this week. This goes to show that the LeBron/Jay partnership is good for much more than scaring the hell out of Danny Ferry and the Cavaliers brass. They’re using their ridiculous celebrity to promote a serious cause.

And then after the concert, these two icons are throwing an afterparty at The View Nightclub. Of course both of these guys will be there, but will Obama go?
