Michael Lewis’ Profile of President Obama.

If you haven’t read Michael Lewis’ Vanity Fair profile of the President yet, you should:

And he chattered constantly. “You can’t leave him open like that!” … “Money!” … “Take that shot!” His team jumped ahead, mainly because it took fewer stupid shots. When I threw one up I discovered the reason for this. When you are on the president’s basketball team and you take a stupid shot, the president of the United States screams at you. “Don’t be looking to the sidelines all sheepish,” he hollered at me. “You got to get back and play D!”

It’s both light-hearted and serious — but also revelatory. I reviewed Lewis’ most recent book, Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World, on the blog a little while ago.
