Star Wars And Obama's Inauguration Posted By Mike on January 22, 2009
Not only were
Samuel L. Jackson
on hand at President Obama's inauguration festivities, but it seems that the President was also told "May the Force be with you."
"President Barack Obama can boast another new title: Jedi Knight. That’s how Bishop T.D. Jakes, a senior pastor from Dallas, addressed Obama during a church service at St. John's Episcopal Church ahead of Obama’s swearing-in. "I say to you as my son who is here today, my 14-year-old son -- he probably would not quote Scripture,” the Washington Post reported Jakes said while looking at Obama. “He probably would use Star Trek instead,” Jakes continued. “And so I say, 'May the force be with you.' " Of course, the good pastor probably did not realize that he had mixed-up his Star Trek and Star Wars galaxies. Quite illogical, as Spock would say. Anyway, as it turned out the force really was with Obama on Inauguration Day. How could it not be with Star Wars composer John Williams there on hand to provide the soundtrack?"

which talks of George Lucas donating money for President Obama's inauguration:
'"Stars Wars" creator George Lucas, Kentfield philanthropist James Kimo Campbell and Mill Valley venture capitalist Mitchell Kertzman and his wife Julie are among Marin residents who have donated more than $291,000 to help cover the cost of President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration festivities next week."
