Dream Momma, One morning I had a dream about Phelps in the pool with Obama and they were eating smoked turkey. (sic)
Dream Momma understands why they were together in a pool swimming in the limelight. They have a lot on common.
For example, in no particular order:
They are both winners.
They broke records.
They are both known to be very focused.
They are top competitors.
Both wrote memoirs.
They were two of GQ's Men of the Year and graced the GQ magazine cover together (along with Jon Hamm and DiCaprio).
Both came from broken homes and were raised by single moms.
They were selected by Barbara Walters as two of the top ten most fascinating individuals in 2008.
Almost hosted SNL together (Obama had to cancel because of Hurricane Ike (guest appearance).
They are both described as incredibly invested in the people they care about.
Dream Momma suspects that once one gets the full glare of the media one must eat a lot of smoked turkey.
