The Met Scores Obama

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will serve alongside the likes of Caroline Kennedy and Renée Zellweger as Honorary Chairmen (Chairpeople?) of the American Ballet Theater's 2009 Spring Gala. Herbie Hancock will also be on hand to play a song that is to be determined, but one that we're pretty sure will not be titled "The Ballad of Barry O." [ABT]
