Sting: Obama sent by God to clean up mess

by Sara Levy

Barack Obama has a divine mandate to solve the world’s problems, Sting said this week.

In a interview, the British pop star joked that the Obama was “sent by God because the world’s a mess”.

Taking a more serious tone, the former lead singer of The Police said when he met up with Obama he “found [the President] to be very genuine, very present, clearly super-smart, and exactly what we need in the world.”

“I can’t think of anyone better qualified because of his background, his education, particularly in regard to Islam,” Sting said.

Sting acknowledged that the Obama has a “difficult job” ahead, adding that he is hopeful for change.
