Barack Obama's deal with Netflix

I take a different stance on Netflix's arrangement with Barack Obama than many of my friends on here. (For one thing, I'm not going to cancel Netflix. I will cancel when I have seen everything I have wanted to see and there is nothing left worth watching). My main criticism of the deal is there is no evidence that Barack Obama knows how to make compelling videos that actually engage millions of viewers. I do not see how the "skill" of earning millions of votes automatically transfers to getting millions of people to sit down and watch videos in a hypercompetitive video environment. Ironically, the current president does know a thing or two about ratings. ;0
