seriously, could obama be the first asian american president?

Earlier this year, SFGate "Asian Pop" columnist Jeff Yang made the compelling case that, in many ways, Barack Obama could be the the first Asian American president. Yeah, I know, not really. Not literally. But in spirit, culture and experience... yeah, kind of. I can believe it.

This week, Jeff appeared on NPR's Tell Me More as part of the show's ongoing "What If" series to talk about his column and this interesting possibility: Asian Writer Ponders First Asian President Too. It's a really good, lengthy interview that actually covers a lot of ground, so check it out. Props, Jeff.
