    Sting: Obama best person to handle world's 'mess'
    By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY (AP) – 1 day ago
    NEW YORK — Sting isn't a religious man, but he says President Barack Obama might be a divine answer to the world's problems.
    "In many ways, he's sent from God," he joked in an interview, "because the world's a mess."
    But Sting is serious in his belief that Obama is the best leader to navigate the world's problems. In an interview on Wednesday, the former Police frontman said that he spent some time with Obama and "found him to be very genuine, very present, clearly super-smart, and exactly what we need in the world."
    "I can't think of anyone better qualified because of his background, his education, particularly in regard to Islam," he said.
    Still, Sting acknowledged the president had a "difficult job" ahead of him.
    The British singer, who released the seasonal album "On A Winter's Night" this week, said he's fascinated by American politics, Obama, and also by Obama's opponents on the right.
    "It's aggressive and violent and full of fear," he said of the backlash against Obama. "They don't want change, they want things to feel the same because they feel safe there."
    Sting, 58, said he's hopeful that the world's problems can be dealt with, but is frustrated that "we seem to be living in a currency of medieval ideas."
    "My hope is that we can start talking about real issues and not caring about whether God cares about your hemline or your color," he said. "We are here to evolve as one family, and we can't be separate anymore."

    I guess not. They all listen to country western crap.


    I don't care for U2's latest efforts, but they are iconic.
