Barack Obama Is Very Barack Obama-y on 2001 Episode of "Check, Please!"

Ivy League law schools aren't the only places you can find a future president, as one Redditor found when stumbling upon this forgotten 2001 appearance by then Illinois state senator, Barack Obama, on PBS' Check, Please!  3 years before the rousing DNC speech that shot him to national fame, Obama talks diplomatically about cornbread and peach cobbler. He even manages to work in a talking point about small business owners! Some things never change.
