PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — President Obama has his hands full, running for re-election as he runs the country.  But a new web video might have him thinking of a career — as a pop star.

Whatever your politics, there’s little doubt the prez can sing.

But when it comes to current catchiest tune — ‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen — will Mr. Obama step up?

He does — on a web video painstakingly spliced from speeches by YouTube mashup sensation BaracksDubs, whose other presidential pop hits have millions of views.
