б Petition to invite President Barack H. Obama to the 40th Anniversary of San Diego Comic Con sign now

This petition is to invite our new 44th President Barack H.Obama as one of the guest panels at this upcoming San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). It will be the 40th anniversary of this yearly event of comics, movies, video games, television, and related popular entertainment. It is a well known international gathering of fans, which is coming up on July 23-26 2009. http://www.comic-con.org/cci/

Obama is a comic-book collector and Spider-Man fan. Marvel Comics has even recently released a special issue of the Spider-Man comics featuring Obama as a side-kick.


We are celebrating many things by having him at SDCC. Obama represents the unheard voices. Typically this has referred to ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation. However, another category of unheard voices are the 'comic-book geeks'. This is about unity and acceptance despite differences. It is also the 40th Anniversary of SDCC and comic convention history has to be made! What better way than with an appearance by the newly elected president (who happens to be a comic book fan).

In response to having Obama in the Spider-Man issue:
"It was a natural after we learned the new president is a Spider-Man fan," says Marvel editor in chief Joe Quesada about reports that Obama once collected Spider-Man comics. "We thought, 'Fantastic! We have a comic-book geek in the White House.' " - (from usatoday.com)

Now how about having this comic-book geek at the special gathering of geeks...at the 40th anniversary of San Diego Comic Con!


With enough signatures/support, this petition will be forwarded to the staff at SDCC.
