Arizona lawmaker Kyrsten Sinema has been invited by President Barack Obama to attend the first-ever White House Poetry Slam on Tuesday.Now, this may not be as cool as when my sister Patti got a private tour of the White House, but it's close (and yes, I'm biased. :)) )
"It's an incredible honor any time to receive an invitation from the White House and President Obama," Sinema said. "But to see our nation's talent and be a part of history at the first-ever White House Poetry Slam is amazing. I'm very excited to be a part of this moment."
Seriously, this really is an incredible honor both for Representative Sinema and for Arizona.
BTW - Between this invite and President Obama's frequent visits, it seems that he doesn't blame all of AZ for the fact that John McCain is based here.
