The First Geek in actionHis nerdiness has never been much of a secret, but pictures of President Obama with a toy lightsaber on the South Lawn Wednesday afternoon have stormed the internet! Fear not, there were real fencers and other athletes on hand – it was all an effort to promote Chicago’s bid to host the 2016 Olympics.
