The Sen. Barack Obama Interview :: Plus, the week’s news and entertainment, week two of Meet the RELEVANT Interns, your feedback and much more …
On the July 7 edition of the RELEVANT Podcast, we started talking about the forgotten "Obama & Me!" 1980s cartoon. (Yes, you have to hear it to get it.)
A few of our most astute and talented listeners not only sent in emails about "Obama & Me," they sent in visuals. Here they are — and if you have some goodies to send in, hit up feedback@RELEVANTmagazine.com:

Came across some stills of the infamous lost pilot episode of "Senator Obama & Me."
12 year old Cameron Strang is sitting outside of school, feeling a bit dejected
Cameron: Jeepers! Am I the ONLY one concerned about the gross social injustices in this world?! Everything around me just seem "irrelevant" to what really matters in life!
Sound effect: SHOOOOOOOOM!
Cameron: Senator Obama! The invisible defender of Justice!
Obama: Yes, Cameron, it is I! I have appeared to you for a special purpose! I am asking you to join me in my never ending quest for social change!
Obama: I have brought along my trusty Rele-Van….
Obama: As well as my faithful Rele-Crew! Meet Maya, Lloyd the Guru, & Adam, the only pre-pubescent in the world with a full face of manly stubble.
Obama: With our forces combined we shall bring social change to the world! But, you must remember that you are the only one who can see me!
Maya: Oh, Cameron! You’re dreamy!
Announcer: Join us next week when Obama & the Rele-crew join forces with Senator McCain & his Howlin’ Commandoes!
