Franklin Wants To Work For Obama
Music legend Aretha Franklin is pitching for a new job, as one of U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's top advisors.
The singer is a huge supporter of the new leader, and has performed in Washington, D.C. as part of his inauguration ceremony.
But Franklin is eyeing a more prestigious post.
In an open letter to Obama, she says, "You should put me on your advisory team. But I am serious if you are interested."
And her first piece of advice concerns the presidential diet: "Eat plenty of good soul food, Indian, Hawaiian, Chinese, gourmet etc.
"Because as Dr. (Martin Luther) King used to say, 'After a good soul meal, I could go around the world on a meal like that.'"
