Remember Vivek Kundra, the White House chief geek who nicked shirts from J.C. Penney in his youth? In 2000, four years after his arrest, Barack Obama's future chief indiscretion officer played political fanboy.

C-SPAN interviewed Kundra and friends camped in a tent outside the Supreme Court, as the justices prepared to usher George W. Bush into office. (Kundra is four minutes into the online clip.) Sounding a bit stoned, Kundra told C-SPAN that he as "very interested in the political landscape of the United States." And now he's CIO! The American dream lives.
