Tom Foreman | BIO
Reporter's Note: President Obama is a Nobel Prize winner, and so he presumably keeps track of who else wins just in case he runs into them at the Nobel reunion. I have not won a Nobel, but McDonald’s is restarting its Monopoly game, so I have some hope there.
Dear Mr. President,
So this is going to be like a modified version of that scene from The Graduate.
Mr. Foreman “I want to say one word to you. Just one word.”
Mr. Obama: “Yes, Tom, go ahead.”
Mr. Foreman: “Are you listening?”
Mr. Obama: “Sure.”
Mr. Foreman: “Really listening?”
Mr. Obama: “Jeesh, it’s easier talking to Republicans. Yes!”
Mr. Foreman: “Graphene.”
Ha! Just fooling around, but I’m not joking about how excited I am about this Nobel prize for the two guys who won for their experiments with this stuff. I had never heard of graphene until I read some articles today, but in my admittedly limited grasp of things scientific I can’t help but feel like this is a very big deal.
“Graphene?” you may say, “What in the name of Joe Biden is that?”
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
