The Prez at DWA

This is intriguing:

On his visit to Los Angeles next week, President Obama will deliver remarks on the economy at a visit to DreamWorks Animation in Glendale, a White House official said on Thursday.

“The motion picture and television industry is a growing industry, and continues to create thousands of jobs across the country,” the White House official said. ...

The DreamWorks visit is part of a swing through Los Angeles that includes events to raise money for House and Senate Democratic campaign committees. ...

Haven't been a lot of big elected officials at cartoon studios. Maybe the closest parallel is fifty-four years ago, when a future President was hosted by a well-loved animation mogul.

And even further back, Disney created a campaign spot for the man I consider one of the great 20th century Presidents, Dwight David Eisenhower.

YouTube says this was done under Roy Disney (I'm assuming Senior). The animation looks like it was drawn by Walt Disney Productions artists.
