Obama jokes about going on tour with soul singer Al Green 'after re-election'
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' President Barack Obama and the Rev. Al Green on tour?
Obama was joined by the soul singer at a Democratic fundraiser on Thursday, a month after the president launched into an impromptu version of Green's "Let's Stay Together" at a New York fundraising event.
The president wouldn't sing this time. Obama says he "took a chance at the Apollo" Theater and he's "not going to take a chance again."
Obama says "after re-election" he might go on tour with Green and "be his opening act." But he says he doesn't want to lose any votes because of his singing voice.
Green was overheard singing his classic song at the fundraiser before the president's remarks.
