Obama vs. Luke Skywalker

For some reason George Lucas actually entertained the question of who would win in a contest between President Obama and Luke Skywalker. I would have awkwardly chuckled and called for security.

Lucas' answer: Obama wins hands down, even without a lightsaber. You are now enlightened.

But does Obama beat Obi-Wan?

False premise. Skywalker and Obama both work for the light side of the Force. Same goes for a battle with Obi-Wan.

Duh.

Not a false premise at all. Without Obi-Wan there would be no Skywalker.

Because Obi-Wan taught Skywalker (et al), it stands to reason that Obi-Wan may be better than Skywalker.

Katie said...

Yes, but they (all three, Obama, Obi-Wan, and Skywalker) are still on the same side. Ergo they would not be battling in the first place. (Assuming that Obama is not under Obi-Wan's tutelage, to improve his own Jedi skills, in which case some kind of dueling would necessarily take place)

Unless, of course, you are suggesting that Obama is in fact a Sith Lord of some kind...
