    Yes he can? Perhaps...Reaction continues to pour in from all over the world following last Tuesday's historic election of Barack Obama. The world sort of seems like a better place these days, doesn't it? Almost anything seems possible, right? It's just all so very bliss...All of which might have lead the king of grime to proclaim, "Dizzee Rascal for Prime Minster, yea!" when he appeared on a post-election special in Britain last week.

    Of course the right honorable gentleman's comment was in obvious good fun. Not so fun, however, was BBC host Jeremy Paxman's line of questioning. In particular, Paxman's decision to ask Dizzee, "Do you feel yourself to be British?" raised more than a few eyebrows. Think Paxman would have reserved the same question for, say...Chris Martin? Probably not.



    Regardless, Dizzee handled it admirably, declaring, "Of course I'm British man. You know me...It don't matter what color you are, it matters what color your heart is...I think a black man, purple man, Martian man could run the country. Whatever man. As long as he does right by the people."

    Well played. Perhaps there's politics in Dizzee's future after all.
