President Obama Reveals His Sci-Fi Favorites And His Inner Nerd

Hey, do you remember this from a few months ago on Star Wars Day?

In case it wasn't obvious by the skinny frame and jug ears, President Obama is a total nerd. The above video is just a little more evidence of it and that he's corrupted Michelle, too. But if you needed a little more proof of his geek cred, Wired has delivered it. They managed to get the current Prez to guest edit the November issue and list all of his favorites in the realm of sci-fi.

His list isn't anything too crazy, either. It's stuff like Star Wars: Episode IV, The Martian, Cosmos, and of course, Star Trek. I think if anything this shows how much of a normal guy he is who likes normal stuff, and that's a big reason why he's the most popular President in history.

And let's face it; considering how much gutter trash is getting thrown around in the Presidential elections right now this is a breath of fresh air. Check out the list below and his full comments on each here.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Blade Runner (1982)
Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
Star Wars: Episode IV—A New Hope (1977)
Star Trek (1966-69)
