Obama Makes Last-Minute Plea on Reddit

No doubt ignores more questions about the drug war


Following an August visit that slowed the site to a crawl, President Barack Obama returned to the popular social news website Reddit to make a last-second plea to get out the vote Tuesday.

Using one of his favorite lines, Obama posted a link to his site with the headline "Reddit, this is important." He followed it up with a comment thanking the users of the site, which lean heavily liberal, for their support—and even threw in a reference to the "not bad" meme that's made its way around the site.
